Kraus' Mouse--""Is he brave--Like a Lion. Is he gentle? Like a lamb. Does he eat? Like a horse..."" And so it goes, through all the cliches that can sound so fresh and/or amusing to the youngest children. Is it illustrated? Like a Kraus turned doodler in blue lines and primitive printing, also blue. Do we like it--Like fish for libraries; like pancakes for book stores--reduced to 10Â¢ a stack.
