KIRKUS REVIEW

It's Mother Mouse's birthday, and little Mouse Six goes off with his knapsack to find a present for her. But, as his mother doesn't want news of her birthday to get out, he refuses to tell the squirrel what he's up to. And so Squirrel concludes that Mouse Six is running away from home, and soon all the animals turn up at the Mouse home with consolation presents--a bunch of hay, an old dry bone, a beetle--which turn into birthday presents once the misunderstanding is straightened out. It is, no doubt, the sentiment that counts, but the trouble is that Miles' story is as inadequate as the gifts.
