KIRKUS REVIEW

What will Little Mouse do? There’s nothing for tomorrow’s breakfast.

“He had searched every sunflower for a seed and every bush for a berry, but all the food was gone.” But he’s a resourceful rodent; along the path, up the drainpipe, and through a window he goes. He spies a bright blueberry on a table. “Well, Little Mouse loved a bright blueberry. A bright blueberry would be just perfect for a little mouse’s breakfast.” He’s headed home when he sees a rosy red apple, which he also loves…then crunchy cookies, cheese, a pickle, sausage, and a cupcake. He adds each food to the pile, heaping them high on his head. But suddenly he spies his favorite breakfast: a sunflower seed. Bending to pick it up sends his stash crashing to the ground, and he’s not the only furry person searching for breakfast in the house. He escapes the black cat and enjoys his seed…but that means he’s out of food again. Luckily there is the house next door. British author/illustrator Pym turns out a charming tale of a hungry mouse and his daring trip indoors. Listeners will enjoy the tale with its rhythmic language and the watercolor-and-pencil illustrations of the wide-eyed, smiling mouse.

Who needs a feast when you have your favorite food? (Picture book. 3-7)
