Reviews

A Theodore Seuss Geisel Honor Award Winner!! Praise for A Brand New Day with Mouse and MoleThe stories are light, with simple plots, and the lively and expressive watercolor illustrations add energy and detail. A worthwhile addition to easy-reader collections.--School Library JournalPraise for Abracadabra! Magic with Mouse and MoleThese two are a lovely addition to the pantheon of easy-reader pals.--School Library Journal, starred reviewFrequent, small frames resembling comic-book cells are sprinkled among the full-page illustrations, pulling the reader forward. Warm nighttime charcoal-and-gouache hues make the magic of Mouse's natural world warm and inviting to new readers.--Kirkus Reviews[T]he artwork nicely reinforces the story's action, the closeness between friends, and shared wonder in nature's magic.--Booklist Praise for Upstairs Mouse, Downstairs Mole

The expressive bamboo-pen and watercolor with colored-pencil illustrations capture the humor of the situations as well as the emotions of the characters. With its controlled vocabulary, repetition, and humor, this tale of friendship also introduces opposites, homophones, and letter writing. A real winner.--School Library journalKids will become more proficient at reading and also come away with a lesson in friendship.--Booklist

In their latest round of endearing adventures, best pals Mouse and Mole suit up excitedly for a day of springtime bird-watching, but before they can focus their binoculars, each of their subjects flies away. Compromising and cooperating are the themes as the friends find elaborate, creative solutions to their problems and make a final project that celebrates their individual talents. Once again, transitional readers will enjoy the well-paced text's wordplay (including lots of puns); the gentle, realistic friendship conflicts; and the ink-and-watercolor artwork that captures the story's humor, action, and feeling.-- Gillian Engberg, Booklist
