Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Max Mouse and friends, introduced in One for All, All for One (Minedition, 2005), are playing together when they become aware of the presence of Rico. He has a reputation of never being nice, so they ignore him. When their ball flies his way, Rico grabs it and runs home. The animal friends follow him and knock on the door, but no one answers. The next day, Rico's mother makes him return the ball. The others want to take it and go, but Max has another idea. He rolls it back inside the burrow and invites Rico to join them. Sure enough, he shows up and they all have a wonderful day together. The textured watercolor illustrations of these slightly cartoonish but totally endearing creatures fill the spreads and add warmth and child appeal to the message on sharing and kindness.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA

Format: Hardcover
Brigitte Weninger and Eve Tharlet, author and illustrator of the popular "Davy" series, have brought us yet another book in the Max Mouse series.

This book is about Max Mouse and his friends trying to play a fun game of ball. They're having a good time, but then Rico the Raccoon shows up and takes their ball, apparently for no reason.

The kids are all convinced that Rico is bad, but Max has a different idea. Find out what he does to solve the problem.

The illustrations are soft and cute, as always. The text probably works best for readaloud to younger readers. A nice story about friends playing together.

Format: Hardcover
This book illustrates to young children how taking prejudice / siding with friends just because, is not good. Rico is watching the friends play but they do not invite him to join in. When Rico takes the ball and runs away, the friends are mad and go to his home to demand their ball back. Finding no one at home, they have to wait until the following day. When Rico's mother hears their story she is furious and the ball is sent down the corridor towards them.

The friends want to leave quickly but Max the mouse has another idea. He rolls the ball back. Oh no, the friends think they will never see it again now but Max thinks otherwise and he is correct. You see, each animal has a handicap: Molly can't see very well, Freddy can't run very well etc so they all have to be extra considerate with each other. When Rico comes to them the next day, will they all be able to play together?

Well worth reading!
