Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—In this fast-paced story with simple text, a young field mouse springs out of bed to find that his mother is not there. He looks for her behind a series of beautifully rendered die-cut illustrations. The acrylic artwork is executed in bold strokes and is textured using a variety of decorative techniques, creating a childlike sensibility and a three-dimensional aspect on every page. The warmth of the mother-child relationship is demonstrated through the search route that Ozzy instinctively chooses. He checks all their favorite spots: the big rock, the garden, the big tree, and the lake. When he turns back to the garden and peeks behind a boldly colored tulip patch, he is met with a cat. He runs back home screaming, but his fears are quickly quelled. This is a great purchase for libraries looking for engaging, interactive books with large typefaces to use for storytime, or for children just starting to read on their own. It will be especially useful to relax preschoolers' separation anxiety, with its reassuring message that, yes, their mothers will come back.—Sara Paulson-Yarovoy, American Sign Language and English Lower School PS 347, New York City

From Booklist

Young Ozzy wakes up one morning to find his mother is missing. In a panic, the little mouse runs outside in search of her. Ozzy spots her behind the picket fence, but it turns out to be cattails. He continues on his quest, looking behind rocks, flowers, and trees, and even by the lake. He is surprised to find an earthworm, a bunny, a squirrel, and even a hippopotamus, but not his mother. Worst of all, the whiskers he spies in the garden belong to a cat (“Oh no! Oh my!”). Racing back home, Ozzy finds his mother, who was simply out gathering breakfast. Young listeners will be gratified by the happy reunion and will enjoy the clever die-cut reveals throughout the book. Simple text and cheerful acrylic-on-paper illustrations make this an appealing, if not blazingly original, title for the youngest of listeners. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Shauna Yusko

I have recently discovered this author and I love the books! The illustrations are amazing - bright and clear, perfect for toddlers, and the books are sweet with a nice theme. I also wish there were board books so my toddler would read them on her own more easily and they are of course sturdier. I have found that it is difficult to find books for toddler with clear and bright illustrations that also tell a story, rather than just teach about a particular subject (i.e. shapes/colors/etc). These are a clear winner!

Ozzy was nestled under the covers of his multicolored quilt shouting for his Mommy. "Mommy, Mommy! Where are you?" He didn't see her so he hurried outside to look for her. He saw a bit of gray between the pickets of the fence and was sure she was on the other side. No, it was only some silver fountain grass just pretending to be Mommy. He skittered off over to a big rock and saw her pink tail hiding behind it. Nope, it wasn't his Mommy. It was only a googly-eyed worm.

The garden seemed like a likely place to find Mommy so off Ozzy went to check it out. He was sure he saw one of her eyes peeking at him from behind the flower bed. Ooops, it wasn't Mommy. It was just a little old bunny rabbit. He glanced up in a tree and exclaimed, "There you are!" when he spotted her back. Fooled again. It was only a gray squirrel getting ready to munch on an acorn. Ozzy ran to the lake, back to the garden where he got a BIG surprise, and then ran as fast as he could for home. Was poor Ozzy ever going to find his Mommy?

This delectably, delightful story of a poor little mouse, Ozzy, who lost his Mommy will charm the reader. Anyone who has ever had a little one who has lost their Mommy will find themselves grinning widely as they read this story. Obviously no one will laugh at poor, distressed Ozzy, but will chuckle as they recall memories of a "lost" child who may have just been in another room when Mommy was lost. Ozzy dashes one way and another wildly seeking his Mommy (spoiler here) who was predictably close by all the while. The cutouts on the pages simply highlight the special nature of this book. The artwork, especially the portraits of wide-eyed Ozzy, screams adorable. This is one of those `once in a while' marvelous books that both young and old fall in love with!

This is both mine and my 14 month old's favorite book which is good because he wants to read it all the time! It's great for younger kids - it's short but I feel like I can improvise a lot with it and when he's older have a dialog with my son. I love how you see a peak onto the next page and when you turn it, you get something different than what you thought.
