Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—The mice are having a harvest party in the garden and everyone is invited, except for the scary cat. He eats meat and makes the mice feel "edgy." Once the house lights are turned off and night closes in, the decorations start looking mighty spooky. Perhaps they're just scary enough to give that pesky cat a fright? Indeed, he ends up being a scaredy cat and the story concludes with the mice partying on. Ehlert uses her signature collage artwork to evoke the textures, shapes, and colors of autumn that pop against the red backgrounds, teal paper, and green vegetables. The art is more frenetic here than in some of her other work, but it suits the story perfectly. It's only natural that the garden would be a whirlwind of activity. The rhyme scheme works well, although there is one odd line: "Seeing that puss could spoil our summer." Yes, "summer" rhymes with the previous "bummer," but the action takes place in the fall. The end is enhanced by photos of various squashes, nuts, and fruits (all labeled) as well as a recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds. This title will please Ehlert's fans, and it is tailor-made for autumn-themed programs. Pair it with Anne Rockwell's Apples and Pumpkins (S & S, 1989) or Carin Berger's The Little Yellow Leaf (HarperCollins, 2008).—Laura Lutz, formerly at Queens Borough Public Library, NY

My first grade students really enjoyed looking closely at the illustrations. It was like a scavenger hunt as they realized how each character had been created by leaves, seed pods, etc. They tried to name every thing that was used to illustrate. When we got to the end of the story, it was very nice to see that all the things used to create the pictures were listed and labeled. Clever!

This is a cute story of mice scaring a hungry cat away. Though the story is cute personally it is not my favorite Ehlert book. It is good to use for an example of collage, if using it within an educational setting.

This book is fun and clever too. Love the art of the author/illustrator. These mice are fun and the cat is spooky without too much fright :)

Love her illustrations. Bought the book because the grand kids adore it. Needed it to give us ideas for our own art work.
