KIRKUS REVIEW

The animals are building a clubhouse, but Morris Mouse is excluded from helping because his long tail keeps knocking over ladders, paint buckets, and everything else. So Morris builds his own clubhouse and finds he can use his tail to measure, mark lines, raise ceiling beams, and so on. When a storm hits both houses, Morris' holds up better, and so he's enlisted to help the others rebuild theirs. The story holds up less well: Morris' switch from klutz to master builder is too sudden, the storm too convenient, and the whole too hastily erected.
