KIRKUS REVIEW

Say 'Cheese!""-- frowning mouse: ""No!"" ""Please?""--indignant mouse: ""NO!"" ""I'll give you some.""--maybe mouse: ""Some what?"" ""Some cheese. See the cheese.""--mouse with downcast eyes. ""Now say 'Cheese!""--determined mouse: ""Cheese!"" ""Now, smile when you say it!""--small smile"" ""Cheese!"" ""How about a really big smile?""--wide toothy smile: ""Cheese!"" ""Bigger""--ear to ear smile: ""CHEESE!"" ""GOOD! HOLD IT PLEASE!""--click! ""Thank you. Here is your cheese.""--""Grrr."" The mouse may not be a mouse (he may be a rat) and this may not be book but it's a sure smile. A greeting card, maybe--a GREAT greeting card.
