Amazon.com Review

Miss Mouse has had quite a day. She's been dressed and fed, muddied and washed, tossed and lost, and above all, loved. Any toddler who depends on a beloved stuffed animal will relate to this fast-paced tale of a wild little girl and the day she spends with her best friend, the lovely, ever-patient Miss Mouse. Whether she's being smeared with paint, packed in sand, or dragged through the mud, the smile never leaves this stuffed animal's goofy, endearing face. When she's accidentally left behind in the yard as night falls, there's one little girl who won't rest until her companion is found, cleaned, and cuddled in bed again. Jan Ormerod's bright, action-packed drawings radiate with the wild joy children experience when they first begin to master the physical world. The brief, expressive text is perfect for prereaders who can easily match the action with the comic-strip-style illustrations. Together they make this boisterous story of a girl and her cherished stuffed animal a spirited, humorous read. (Baby to age 3) --Marianne Painter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Ormerod's (Who's Whose) buoyant, paneled pictures propel this storybook about a mouse doll and her girl owner who start the morning with a cuddle in bed. The minimal text narrated by Miss Mouse offers a breezy commentary on the day's activities. Diverting visual details abound as the girl and her mouse eat breakfast, draw pictures, don dress-up clothes, eat lunch al fresco, play a variety of games outdoors and finally prepare for bed. Ormerod's spontaneous narrative is composed largely of brief phrases and comical asides. For example, a trio of images of the child--with Miss Mouse riding on her shoulders--running, slipping and falling in mud accompany the pleasingly onomatopoeic words, "Whee! Oops. SPLAT!" The text also provides deadpan contrast to the artwork as when, in a series of panels, Miss Mouse becomes separated from the girl on the slide and ends up nose first on the ground: "I'm a very fine slider.../ mostly." Ample picture clues and simple vocabulary make this a solid choice for children just beginning to sound out words. They'll be quite content to spend the day with the amiable Miss Mouse and her sidekick. Ages 2-up.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter (2yrs) loves this book! It's a sweet day-in-the-life story of a beloved stuffed mouse. It is a good bedtime storybook because it finishs with a cuddle and a kiss...the best way to end. My daughter picked it out herself and immediately sat down to "read" it, creating her own story-then begging me to read her the words. It has simple text with a lot of colorful pictures that are full of action and detail...which is why the simple prose works so well. All in all an instant favorite.

Format: Hardcover
A little girl and her stuffed mouse doll play together all day long -- this is a wonderful glimpse into the world of play and imagination, and parents with a kid like this will smile with recognition. So will their children. Followed by the sequel, "Miss Mouse Takes Off." (ReadThatAgain)
