"[T]here is nothing more precious, than mice in the library reading books..." --Brentwood Library Brentwood, CA

"[W]hat do a mouse, a trapeze and a library have in common? The answer lies within the pages of the Little Library Mouse, by Stephanie Lisa Tara. A nameless mouse jumps into action, through rhyme, as the library is closed for the evening. We're invited on a journey as the mouse"sails on a sentence" and becomes library book characters, including a ship, a wild animal and a circus act. Tara enchants us with her storytelling as she makes a library tour exciting, encouraging literacy and reading. Little Library Mouse is to be applauded for its light-as-a-feather rhymes, a style Tara undoubtedly perfected while earning a B.A. in English. The illustrations, by Alex Walton, are bold,confident, full-page drawings of a mouse as he takes on the identity of the story he becomes. This exciting adventure is sure to please the preschooler set and would also make a great baby shower gift. It would also be an excellent jumping-off point for parent/teacher and child to create new rhymes, based upon Tara's format. Armchair Interviews says:This story, as with the Man on the Flying Trapeze,"floats through air with the greatest of ease." Bravo, Little Library Mouse...bravo!" --Armchair Interviews

"[E]ven when you are little you can imagine big, so begins this adorable book.Written in rhyme, the story begins as the clock goes tick-tock, is that the key in the lock? It is the end of the day and the library is closed. A white mouse dressed in a purple suit begins to tell of his adventures, of all the things he can be. With the help of books he can be a clown, a juggler, or a lady bug on a leaf. On the pages he flips, he finds good cheer in storybook trips. In winter he's snow spinning a silvery fable, frosted wilderness-white on the library table. He's a king, he's a queen, and upon all words he stands tall.He's red, he's yellow, and he's iridescent blue. Short stories are rainbows of sharp color and hue. He is paper, he is ink. He becomes any book he reads. He can read, he can imagine so can you, take a look. If you want to stimulate your child's imagination this is the book for you. It is colorful and fun to read.Who doesn't love cute little mice, as long as they are illustrated in books? Each page is filled with fantasy and wonder." -- Shirley Labusier, "Book Talk"

From the Publisher

Stephanie Lisa Tara credits an overactive imagination for her whimsical, story-verse style. As a child, Stephanie transformed people and pets into animated personalities through fanciful lyrical rhymes. No one was safe!

Stephanie earned a B.A. in English literature and poetry at the University of Connecticut. She spent the next ten years writing ad copy in Manhattan. After the birth of her daughter, Madeline, Stephanie decided to focus on her passion--children’s verse, which she deeply believes has the inherent power to charm, inspire, and teach children and adults alike. Tying verse together with insight means magic for Stephanie. Her work is inspired by literature's lauded children's authors--from Grimm to Lear to Seuss.
