Mouse Tales has long been a family favorite. Now that I have my own son, he has two copies...my ragged paperback from when I was a child, and a hardback French-language version. The best story in our opinion has always been about the mouse who goes to visit his mother, and ends up buying new feet from a vendor at the side of the road, since his own were worn out. To this day whenever someone in our family gets a suntan above their socks, we tell them what nice new feet they have, just like the mouse's mother in the story. Definitely a classic.

I love Arnold Lobel. He tends to always use animals to convey morals. Immediately because of the sweet illustrations of animals wearing clothes, kids are delighted. The stories are simple and make great short stories for kids right before they delve into more difficult chapter books. These stories show friendship, manners, respect for differences, and helpfulness. This book is filled with positive stories. The tales show cause and effect relationships or compare and contrast stories. It would be a great book to use in an author study of Arnold Lobel. I highly recommend this book in addition, to all of his great books!

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Sarah Sammis on May 15, 2007
Format: Paperback
There are seven short tales, all involving mice, and bookended by a father mouse who is telling these stories to his children at bed time, one per child. The seven stories included are: The Wishing Well, Clouds, Very Tall Mouse and Very Short Mouse, The Mouse and the Winds, The Journey, The Old Mouse, and The Bath. Of the seven, my favorite is The Wishing Well as it takes an unusual and humorous approach to the usual wishing well story. The most disturbing of the stories is The Journey because it involves replacement feet. Knowing Sean, I think his favorite will be The Bath because of the absurd bath/flood the little mouse creates just to get clean.

This book is full of fond memories for me. A wishing well that says "Ouch!" and a cloud that turns into a giant cat. What do you do when your suspenders break and everyone makes fun of you? (Bubble gum!) Or when the wind blows your sailboat onto a house? There's a mouse that wears out his last pair of feet--and has to buy new ones--and another who floods the neighborhood taking his bath. Each story touches a part of life: fear, silliness, happiness, friendship.
Well told and wonderfully illustrated, here are seven tiny journeys of the soul and hours of enjoyment, whether you're a Very Short Mouse or a Very Tall Mouse.

Format: Paperback
This was one of my most adored books as a child. The stories are interesting, the pictures adorable, and while a child may get the satisfaction of reading a "whole book", it would not take up a parent's whole night to read. However, at 25, I rediscovered this book and was a bit taken aback at how there really are no "happy endings" to these 7 stories, but rather the stories of the journeys themselves. They should be considered original (Hans Christan Anderson) fairy tales, rather than modern (Disney) ones, and possibly need a parent's explanation.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a series of seven very silly, very short stories within one book, which is great if it's bedtime and you're like "I can't read the whole book, but I'll read two of these" or whatever. At first, I found them a little too repetitive and silly, but soon found that Lobel left plenty of room for a parent to embellish these stories with funny voices and sound effects (like the wind blowing, or the new feet pitter-patting). Once I figured that out, this became one of our favorite bedtime reads, with my daughter anticipating the next silly event and having loads of fun. The whole book is bracketed by a father mouse reading to his seven mouselets, which is a great way to signal to your kid that s/he's going to bed, too. Extremely sweet book with a neat nostalgic wallop.

The cozy narrative of the mouse storyteller makes this great children's book shine. The seven stories are among Lobel's best, and this is the perfect fireside tale to tell to young mice who are not quite ready for bed.

This is a great book with seven short stories for kids. I have three kids and they love all of them.

I also bought this book because my grandmother used to have it and I loved to read it when I was a kid.
