Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The beloved Whose Mouse Are You? has a sequel! This newest work is in vivid color, with amusing and delightfully detailed paintings. "Where are you going, little mouse?" "As far from home as I can go," he replies. He sets off on a quest as we glimpse a saddened, lonely family of mice. Little mouse moans: "They don't love me. They won't miss me." He wants another, more exciting family that will fulfill his fantasies of unlimited attention, food, fun and adventure, but soon realizes that home is best after all. "By the way they kiss and hug me I can tell they really love me. I love them too." This wonderfully understated picture book resonates with emotions deeply felt by young children: rejection, elation, reconciliation, comfort, love. Fifteen years was much too long to wait for this gem.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K A satisfying, reassuring picture book. Little Mouse, of Whose Mouse Are You? (Macmillan, 1972), is unloved by everyone in his familyor so he believes. The only thing to do is to run away from home to find a more appreciative mother, father, brother and, certainly, sister. As he crosses mountains and oceans, deserts and jungles, Little Mouse discovers that he truly misses them. All are happily reunited after a frantic call from a nearby telephone booth, and Little Mouse knows from their hugs and kisses that they missed him, too. The story and cartoon pictures complement each other beautifully, with familiar childhood feelings of occasional rejection, excitement of adventure into the unknown and the final reassurance of family love. Pages are bright with color, detailed with expressive movement and feeling. Each page is a delight for young readers and listeners. Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, Ohio

I bought this book for my grandsons as I had already given another book by this auther (Who's mouse are you?) to their mother. When she was a child I read it to her and she read it to her baby brother. I had to replace it for her when her first son came along. Then I saw this book by the same author so I bought it. I think my 7 year old grandson will read it to his baby brother who is 11 months old and who listens to everything his big brother says just like their mother did for her brother.

This is another short, simple mouse book. The little mouse decides to run away and find a new family... but that doesn't work out. Do you know, his family came to pick him up anyway, even though he ran off? They do love him, you know.

I love the fact that many of the illustrations recall events of the first (?) book, Whose Mouse Are You?

This is a book that my mom used to read to me & now reads to my little brothers. It's a children's classic for every parent, grandparent, or even older sibling to read to young children.
