Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Maria and a young mouse are secret friends living parallel lives in a sprawling home. Everything Maria does with her human family, Mouse Mouse does with her family, who live below the floorboards. But the child knows that if she tells her parents about Mouse Mouse, they will get a cat to get rid of the mice, and Mouse Mouse knows that if she lets her parents know that she's friends with Maria, they will flee to a hole in the ground. One night, both mothers disappear. After a search of the house, the girls are surprised to find their mothers chatting like old friends in the shed. The story is charming in its simplicity, but it's the detailed pen and ink and watercolor illustrations showcasing the little details of suburban living that set this book apart. From the pictures on the wall and the toys scattered in the yard to the games and books in the living room, these images have plenty to offer, and readers will enjoy the rewards of looking at the pictures again and again.—Jennifer Miskec, Longwood University, Farmville, VA

From Booklist

This is an upstairs/downstairs story of friendship between Maria, a sweet little girl, and rodent Mouse Mouse. Their friendship is a secret, but their lives share many similarities as McClintock’s busy, colorful illustrations demonstrate. Large two-page spreads are divided horizontally to show the warm surroundings and the stuff that makes a cozy human home—plants, lamps, pillows, pictures, books—many of which are duplicated on the bottom half in equally cozy mouse digs. Maria reads on the living room floor, Mouse Mouse reads curled up in a can. They even have matching slippers at the sides of their beds (Maria’s is a spool bed, Mouse Mouse’s is made of clothes pins). It is these details, rendered in pen and ink, watercolor and gouache, that will engage young readers as they pore over both worlds, comparing furniture, mobiles, and nighttime rituals. When their mothers go missing, both are frantic until the mystery is solved with a BIG and very satisfying surprise. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Edie Ching

Format: Hardcover
‘Where's Mommy?’ written by Beverly Donofrio and illustrated by Barbara McClintock is a kind of sequel to author’s previously released ‘Mary and the Mouse, The Mouse and Mary’ and present the adventures of our known heroes’ daughters.

Maria, a young girl has a mouse called Mouse Mouse for her best friend. They two hide their friendship because of Maria’s fear her parents would get rid of mouse friend if they would find out about her.

So, both girls live their parallel lives, going into bed at the same time, even calling their mothers at the same time. But surprisingly this evening both of their mothers are gone and nowhere to be found. Maria and Mouse Mouse will try to find their mothers, they will ask their family members, but they cannot find out anything.

Suddenly they will notice a light in the shed and will go there together. Those familiar with the author’s first book will know whom they saw there, while all others will be surprised seeing that two mothers are just as good friends as their daughters.

‘Where's Mommy?’ is a parallel story and a kind of sequel of Beverly Donofrio’s previously published work that speaks about friendship of two generations.

The illustrations that picture many details of human and mice worlds made using upstairs/downstairs approach are nicely drawn and will appeal to children from 3 years onwards.

Therefore ‘Where's Mommy?’ is a picture book that is definitely recommended to those who loved Donofrio previous ‘Mary and the Mouse’ work, while everyone else whichever of those two works will buy cannot go wrong - they are both beautifully drawn, with a nice story and a pleasant pace, which makes them a good choice to bring along into the child room before your kid is going to sleep.

Love this book and it's greatly detailed illustrations! When I was a small girl, my cousin and I used to spend our summers making mouse houses out of shoe boxes and felt. Beverly Donofrio also happens to be one of my favorite Authors!
