GEORGE AND MATILDA MOUSE AND THE MOON ROCKET

Distressed because the moon seems to have disappeared, the mice introduced in two previous books about George and Matilda ingeniously outfit a rocket-like thing they find in the garden where they live and ride it aloft, ending on a housetop where they see the moon after all: a bonfire and fireworks (like their rocket) had obscured it with smoke. Though American children may not recognize Guy Fawkes Day, the story's visual appeal is universal. The plot's predictable, but young readers entranced by the bright-eyed mice, their cozy, lovingly detailed home among the roots under a rock garden, and their Borrower-sized engineering feats aren't likely to care.
