 In the repetitive cadence of a traditional nursery tale, a mouse seeks a playmate (`` `Can I play with you?' the mouse asked the bee. `Of course...We'll play Buzz-a-lot,' said the bee...But the mouse didn't like it a lot''). After trying several unsuitable companions, he finds his own kind--and makes a hit showing them all the exciting games he's learned: ``Woof-a-lot,'' etc. Skillfully crafted, appealing, and original; the brightly colored illustrations, deftly limned in broad, scribbly pencil, are perfect for group sharing. (Picture book. 2-6)
