KIRKUS REVIEW

... is a small book that offers uncluttered ink outline illustrations and a quiet incident -- best suited to the pre-nap reading of short attention spans. It recounts a discovery by Mouse who tells his best friend, Turtle, who lets Trisha in on it until a whole menagerie of animals -- giraffes, horses, elephants, birds -- gather to watch the discovery (three alligator eggs) hatch. The author/illustrator goes Joan Walsh Anglund one better -- the little girl Trisha, in addition to having no mouth, has no nose. A pleasant bookstore pick-up item and, if it were closer to Christmas, a potential stocking stuffer.
