Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

More About the Author

James Howe has written more than eighty books in the thirty-plus years he's been writing for young readers. It sometimes confuses people that the author of the humorous Bunnicula series also wrote the dark young adult novel, The Watcher, or such beginning reader series as Pinky and Rex and the E.B. White Read Aloud Award-winning Houndsley and Catina and its sequels. But from the beginning of his career (which came about somewhat by accident after asking himself what kind of vampire a rabbit might make), he has been most interested in letting his imagination take him in whatever direction it cared to. So far, his imagination has led him to picture books, such as I Wish I Were a Butterfly and Brontorina (about a dinosaur who dreams of being a ballerina), mysteries, poetry (in the upcoming Addie on the Inside), and fiction that deals with issues that matter deeply to him. He is especially proud of The Misfits, which inspired national No Name-Calling Week (www.nonamecallingweek.org) and its sequel Totally Joe. He does not know where his imagination will take him in the next thirty-plus years, but he is looking forward to finding out.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dan on March 22, 2011
Format: Paperback
I don't think I've ever offered a review here, but we love this book, and I want to offer a different opinion than the review already posted here.

We just borrowed this book from the library for my 2 year old son and he loves it. We borrow about 10 picture-books a week, every week, so he sees many children's books. This has been one of his favorites. It might give you an idea of how my 2 year olds taste runs if I mention he also loves "Bob The Chicken" and "Click Clack Moo". I see a vague similarity between the rhyming/rhythmic text of this book, and the cadence of the text of those other 2 books, but no similarity between the illustration styles.

This is our first exposure to Horace, Morris & Dolores. We'll be checking out the other 2 books as well. The text in this one is lyrical and provides the full story (you don't need to have read the previous 2 books for this one to work), complete with plot and character development, but the book also has a few pages of illustrations without added text so that you and your child can embellish the story together.

I disagree with the other review here that says the pictures are dark and the cartoonish depiction of the characters is problematic since it leaves them unidentifiable as mice. The last page of the book depicts a street fair at night. It looks just like that, and it shows Dolores finding a way to feel that she belongs even if she can't participate as she originally wanted to. That page has 3 words on it and an enormous amount of detail in the image so that you and your child can explore the scene, and talk about the story and the pictures. As to how the characters look, I don't think children have such a strong need to be literal.

This book was absolutely perfect for my daughter. I picked this book up by "accident" at the library. And it couldn't have been more fitting for my daughter who we just recently have figured out is allergic/sensitive to dairy. She has gotten rashes (eczema) from eating dairy and it's not quite as drastic as Dolores', but my daughter gets the point. She used to eat dairy all the time. And just like Dolores, we've had to stop.

With a child with food allergy, this is a perfect book. I think my daughter appreciates reading a book who's main character is just like her.

Bravo author for writing a sensitive fabulous book. 5 stars for sure.

I bought the three Horace and Morris books for my 3 year old grandson's birthday. Right before his birthday, James Howe came to our school to do a presentation to the 6th - 8th grade students. I left the books with our librarian and asked if James had a minute could he sign one of the books for me. Not only did he sign one, but he signed all three with a personal message on each. What an awesome keepsake for my grandson, and he loves the stories, too!

My granddaughter loves books and Grandma Delores. A perfect book to support the name Delores. Cheese is also one of granddaughters favorite treats.
