KIRKUS REVIEW

A mouse staunchly, stubbornly and successfully maintains that he is the master of the world--that's the news in this tricky Turkish tale. His boast to the lizard is backed up by a great clap of thunder, to the cockroach by a flash of lightning; and while the dog insists that his master is the master of the world, he doesn't stick around to prove it. Neither does the imperious mouse learn his lesson from the mighty elephant--whose blast of water he takes to be a cloudburst. So, snickering at the other animals, he can go home to his doubting uncle in supreme confidence. Drawn to match (the mouse's grandiose view of himself) by the supremely comical Emily McCully.
