Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The concept of size is explored in this tale of a mouse who finds his place in the world's pecking order. Little Big Mouse longs to be as tall as his older brother or his parents. He sneaks out of his apartment building to find the secret of being big. His journey is fraught with peril as hostile animals eye him hungrily, but the determined rodent perseveres. Discovering a circus, he decides to approach the elephants: Who would know more than they do about being big? When asked about his size, one pachyderm replies that he has always been big--even when he was little. When a flea appears on Little Big Mouse's nose and asks, "Can you tell me how you got to be so big?", the mouse returns home, comforted by the fact that size is all relative. Set off by ample white space, Karlin's boldly colorful cartoons brim with winsome characters and good humor. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A small mouse leaves home to seek advice on how to grow really big. Seeing a circus parade, he decides to consult an expert on the subject--an elephant. The pachyderm proves to be less than helpful; it seems that he started out large. When a flea asks the mouse how he has become so enormous, the mouse realizes that everything is relative and returns home, contented with his stature. The colorful cartoon figures illustrate the simple tale and provide touches of humor. Much ado about very little. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
