""Janis Ian easily conquers a new audience with her adorable mouse, both book and music. The story is as full of joy and adventure as any young reader could want.

Starred review. A little whimsy, a little darkness, a little music for a song turned into a picture book by veteran singer/songwriter Ian...The Schuberts’ illustrations are brightly colored and often surreal...Both words and music are appended, and a CD is included with three versions: vocal with band (that includes quite a wonderful clarinet), a band-only karaoke version and vocal with guitar. It is a rollicking little number...
