KIRKUS REVIEW

Fifty poems about mice, among them several tripping nursery rhymes, some lesser, cuter entries on the same young level (by Aileen Fisher, Mary Ann Hoberman, John Farrar), several tart selections with the nursery-rhyme snap (Lewis Carroll leads in this category), an occasional pause for clear-eyed observation (at best with John Clare), a few small stretchers (by William Stafford, Edith Sitwell), and Robert Burns' inevitable wee beastie. With sprightly fine-line illustrations, a small-scale volume suitable for easy dipping and catchy reading aloud.
