KIRKUS REVIEW

A pair of mice, with the assistance of some of their garden-robbing peers, prepare a harvest feast, not forgetting to make arrangements to scare off that pesky cat. Incorporating photographs of harvest fruits and vegetables (with an abundance of Indian corn and gourds) into her trademark collages fashioned of fabric and cut- and torn-paper, Ehlert arranges a series of striking tableaux as the mice (resplendent in soft, blue handmade paper and sporting braided-twine limbs) go about their business, the cat (with cherry nose and pumpkin-seed teeth) peeking in from the margins. Although some spreads may well overwhelm with the complexity of their detail, the mice’s insouciant narration and the inviting seek-and-find nature of the illustrations will keep kids coming back. (Picture book. 3-6)
