A MOUSE TOLD HIS MOTHER by Bethany Roberts
ANIMALS
Released: April 1, 1997

"Begin has imagined the domestic details of a mouse's world with winsome humor: twig furniture, an acorn-cap washbasin, a bathtub made from an empty catfood tin; the pictures not only enhance the story, but really make it work. (Picture book. 3-7)"
A mouse child, at bedtime, tells his mother that he's going on a trip—to the moon, to dive for pirate treasure, to fly an airplane around the world, to explore a spooky cave, etc. Each exploit is suggested by something he sees around him—the boat in his bathtub, a toy plane, the dark ``cave'' under his bed.
