Book Description

Cozy up to this tender tale about overcoming fears and finding friendship, from the New York Times bestselling author of Bear Snores On.

Lewis Mouse is preparing his nest for winter. It is cozy and it is warm, and yet something is missing. All of a sudden—

SCRITCH, SCRATCH, TAP, TAP, TAP!

Lewis hears the scariest noises! Who can be making those sounds? He uses his bravest voice to shout, “WHO GOES THERE?” and scare off whoever it is. But could it be that he has nothing to be afraid of? Perhaps whoever is making the noise might make Lewis’s home even cozier!


Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Lewis Mouse knows winter is coming so he readies his small home in the bottom of a big tree. Once the critter settles in, he hears scratching and tapping outside his door. Lewis imagines it's an owl, but when he looks out he sees nothing. When he's in bed, he hears the sounds again, but once more sees nothing outside his door. This time Lewis imagines it's a big cat. Too wound up to sleep, he fixes himself a cup of tea and tries to relax. But again, he's interrupted by the scary sounds. Lewis's imagination tells him it's a bear this time, but he's had enough. He grabs a lantern and heads outside. On the other side of his tree, he encounters a mouse named Joy. She tells him she's been hearing horrible shouting coming through the walls of her house. They discover they are sharing the same tree. Lewis invites Joy over for tea, and the last scene depicts a happy ending. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are delicate and sweet, making them a perfect match for the story. There are lots of fall colors, and Lewis's imagined frights are cast in ominous blue/gray tones. A pleasing selection for autumn storytimes.-Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Review

"Wilson makes good use of sound effects and repetition to build suspense and depicts Lewis as no scaredy-mouse, as he bravely faces his fears. Little readers will be reassured by the warm, fuzzy conclusion. Currey’s pen, ink and watercolor illustrations nicely contrast the dark night with the cozy interiors and are a bit Beatrix Potter–esque in their depictions of Lewis. The start of a beautiful friendship. Lovely."
(Kirkus)

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely old fashioned illustrations December 25, 2013
Format:Hardcover
Lewis Mouse has a wonderful little home at the base of a tree. He has filled it with food and comfortable leaves for the winter. As the fall wind begins to blow, he settles down in his cozy home to enjoy the winter. He knows that he is prepared for winter, but something seems to be missing. He hears a scratching noise and goes to the door to investigate, but no one is there. He keeps hearing this noise, but can't seem to find who is making the scary sound. Finally he is able to find the source of the noise and make a friend to spend the winter with.

Parents and children alike will enjoy the rhyming words. The illustrations are reminiscent of the early fairy tales and add depth to the story. The tale adds suspense while still conveying the warmth of home and friendship. Children will love the courageous little mouse and entertaining story.

I received this story free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.

My daughter absolutely loves this book! We first checked it out from the library and she got really upset everytime I tried to return it. She had never done that before. She called it "my book!" At that point I decided she needed her own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mysterious sounds October 6, 2014
Format:Hardcover
Lewis Mouse heard noises outside his cozy home at the base of a tree. They were scritchy, scratchy noises, and Lewis was frightened. Could it be an owl? Or a cat? Or a bear? Lewis faces his fears and goes outside to search for the source of the noise. What will Lewis find? Anna Currey has created charming watercolor and pen and ink illustrations with changing moods in the pictures, as Lewis Mouse's emotions change. A great book for kids aged 3-6 to see how our imaginations can fool us.

More About the Author

My life is a series of lessons and moments that see me to the next lessons and moments. Some moments are sweet, some scary, some a blur gone too fast and forever missed. I write for children because all of these steps started there, in childhood, and that sense of wonder, keen curiosity, and the ability to see things much kinder and more magical than they actually were, fades as time passes and years and experience claim your naivety. For me it is a feeling only rekindled when I am creating books, stories and poetry.

My children, family and friends are a great inspiration to me, and the support of my readers is a tremendous honor. It is always my desire to entertain children and encourage them to think about and explore their world, and the worlds beyond, embrace creativity, and love learning for the duration of their life. Knowledge comes through words, so for me literacy is the foundation of education, and it bears the fruit of intelligent and empathetic citizens of this world and humanity.
