Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Also celebrating an anniversaryAits 30thAis Whose Mouse Are You? by Robert Kraus, illus. by Jose Aruego. Minimalist art and memorable text are more than the sum of its parts: "Whose mouse are you?/ Nobody's mouse./ Where is your mother?/ Inside a cat," it begins forlornly, but reverses into a joyful ending, with the mouse reuniting his far-flung family and gaining a new brother. (S&S, $17 40p ages 3-7 ISBN 0-689-84052-7; Sept.)

Review

Kirkus Reviews The quintessential picture books can't be plotted out or put into any other words; ergo,"Whose mouse are you?/Nobody's mouse./Where is your mother?/Inside a cat./Where is your father?/Caught in a trap..." But that's all we'll tell you -- the ending is too good to give away...

School Library Journal ...[O]ne of the simplest -- and best -- picture boks to come along in years...

The Horn Book ...[A] story-hour treat...

A small grey mouse with enormous ears is asked by the narrator who he belongs to. Why, he's nobody's mouse!! Where's his mother? Inside the cat!! Where's his father?? Inside a trap!! What about his sister?? She's lost, far, far away... My goodness!! Well, what is he going to DO about it, then?? I'll let you read to find out his fun, creative answers to his life's problems!
Originally published in 1970, "Whose Mouse are You?" is as much fun for young children and beginning readers now as it was back then. The text is short and simple, it rhymes and repeats, so even very young children can get interested in the story and repeat it after a few tellings. The illustrations are wonderfully simple and uncluttered, drawn with only with black yellow and red (from which we can get pink, orange and grey, too!)
When I was a infant/toddler teacher in daycare, "Whose Mouse are You?" was one of the all time favorites. Children just learning how to speak would call out "mouse book!! Mouse book!" and then sit glued to the pages. I've even seen an elementary school art teacher use this book to show how one does NOT need a box of 2 bazillion crayons to make interesting and fun illustrations-"get creative with limited tools" she said, passing out only red, yellow and black markers to the class.
For lapsitting readers as well as beginning readers, "Whose Mouse..." is an excellent choice and a lot of fun!! Enjoy!!

When I was 7 years old living in LA(1976?) a sales man knocked on our door.He carried with him a huge box painted with three bold stripes in red,blue,and orange.The box was a free gift if you purchased a subscibtion to a "book of the month club"featuring childrens books.We wanted all the books he had with him that day and as luck would have it ,our parents found this to be a great deal.The first book that came in the mail was addressed to my brother and myself.We got mail!When we opened the brown package,the most wonderful book fell on to the floor.The book was so bright and the artwork was so beautiful;it transported my brother and I right into the very HEART of the book.I am a 31 year old women now,yet I can still remember EVERY line from that book.What a joy to know there are other people out there with the same feeling...This story is so wonderful and the ARTWORK is UNFORGETABLE! I hope anyone thinking of buying this book will.I also hope all of the special people who were 'lucky' enough to have this gift in there lives as children will pass it on!

I can remember my mom reading this book to me when I was very young. I am 22 now, and I know that my Mom read many books to me when I was young, but this is one that I always remember. I can't even recall the exact subject matter, but I do remember that it made me seriously think about how I would feel if my parents and my sisters weren't with me every day. "Whose Mouse Are You?" made me consciously thankful to be a part of a loving family.

This was both my sister's and my favorite book when we were little--the first and last thing we ever agreed upon! :-) Ten years later I can still recite the book word-for-word, and it makes me smile every time I think about it. The illustrations are colorful and unique, and the little mouse is so CUTE!

This book means so much to me. When I was little I use to carry it around even though I really couldn't hold it. It use to drag the ground. I would lay on my father's chest every night as he read it to me. My nickname to this day from him is Mouse. Because I am my daddy's mouse. When I got married he gave the book to me as a wedding present. Of course not the same copy as that one was lost in our many moves, but he searched all over for a copy of it for me. It is a wonderful book and I plan to read it to my kids.

Children love to be able to read alone and this book is a great early reader. With simple words, a wonderful, inspiring story and beautiful pictures, it is perfect for your little one. I read it as a child, and it is one of the first books my son was able to read on his own (I still have my copy from when I was a kid)!

I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do!

I love this book. I first heard it when I was 5 years old. (I will be 23 in a couple of weeks.) I have had this book memorized since then. I remembered harassing the librarian in my elementary school for this book. Now that I know I can buy it, I'm going to ask my boyfriend to buy it for me for my birthday. I think everyone should buy this book. It's cute and easy to read, and memorize.

My parents read this book to me when I was young and when I was around three, I could reicte the whole thing from memory and then claimed that I could read it. It gave me the confidnce to really learn to read. It is an amazing book that every child should read. I'm seventeen now and it's still my favorite.
