KIRKUS REVIEW

The more one thinks about it the sillier this story becomes, and yet as one reads one accepts the impossible. A one time opera star could no longer hit the high notes -- that is until a mouse ran across her toes at the exact moment when the note came out, full volume. So her doting husband set about to train the mouse, Mimi, to repeat her performance -- yes even to taking her baby mice across the opera house stage during the mad scene in Lucia. Entertaining line sketches help the story along. It is original; try it for yourself.
