Kindergarten-Grade 2–The three mouse friends are back in a story about Dolores's new and unfortunate allergy. When she eats cheese, she sneezes and breaks out in itchy spots. Dolores could not imagine life without cheese. It was her favorite thing to eat! Can she quit it cold turkey? Even with the town's Everything Cheese Festival coming up? Soon Dolores learns that she can go on after a setback, and also that, when it comes to making lunches, a little creativity goes a long way. Fans of the other books about these appealing rodents will find the same rhythmic ease in the writing, and the same light touch with a message. Walrod's colorful cartoon-style artwork adds lots of humor and personality. Allergy sufferers will find this reassuring in a nondidactic way, and all kids will smile, even without saying cheese.–Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
