Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 Cat and Mouse are ready for their usual play date but find that, overnight, snow has turned their familiar green meadow into a different world. While climbing a hill in search of the missing field, "The ground slipped away and down, down, down they slid." The animals' brothers and sisters are surprised to encounter "two strange white creatures" with frozen whiskers and large, dark eyes peering out. Soft brush strokes lend texture and depth to the inviting illustrations. As in Bogacki's previous "Cat and Mouse" books (Farrar), the minimalist text expresses the joy of new discoveries and experiences. Young listeners will delight in solving the mystery of the disappearing meadow. An enjoyable story that would work well in a winter storytime. Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

From Booklist

The meadow that beckoned in Cat and Mouse in the Rain (1998) becomes a winter wonderland for the inquisitive duo in the fourth entry in a beguiling series. After Cat and Mouse climb "up, up, up" a snowy hill, they fall "down, down, down" and are covered with snow. At first, their equally curious siblings mistake them for monsters. But after suffering the same slippery fate, they realize their error, and a day of wintry fun ensues. These friendly animals are drawn big and bold, yet the colors and textures are soft and suggestive. Together, the strongly composed, deceptively simple paintings and the repetitive text exceed their commendable parts. This captivating story ends on a tranquil note that will remind some readers of Keat's The Snowy Day as the mice and cats retreat to the sanctity of home and Mom and dream of another wonderful winter day. Terrific for reading aloud to young groups. Julie Corsaro

Format: Hardcover
Cat and Mouse have a wonderful sense of awe and excitement when they encounter their first change of season, when the landscape has turned from green foliage to white snow. Their sense of discovery is evident and the text is wonderful to read aloud. Children will enjoy saying "whoosh" and repeating phrases like "up,up,up" and "down,down,down." After sharing the book, a great follow-up activity is to go and play in the snow of course!
