PET MICE by Jerome Wexler


Email this review


A detailed, vividly photographed discussion of raising mice as pets, by an author-photographer of many books for children; the full-color, close-up photos showing the mice from birth to maturity are especially appealing here. Instructions for selecting, housing, feeding, training, breeding, and raising mice are given; there are also tips on bedding, snacks, fleas, mice that escape, sick mice, dead mice, and mice that bite. One minor error: rabbits are listed as rodents--they aren't. A fine browsing title of special interest to nature- or pet-lovers. Index.
