KIRKUS REVIEW

 Again using her unique medium--brightly colored pulp applied to a screen to make ``handmade paper in which the stenciled images have become a part of the paper itself''--the author of Count (p. 51) creates a lively introduction to the colors: a simple story about a mouse who eats nine fruits and vegetables whose juices leave patches of stain on the appealing little creature, who tracks them across the clean, white pages and then exhibits them for identification in the last illustration. With large areas of brilliant, subtly modulated color and handsome compositions incorporating boldface type, a beautifully crafted book that's sure to delight young audiences. (Picture book. 0-5)
