Editorial Reviews

Review

"Folklorist MacDonald retells this cautionary tale from the Limba people of Sierra Leone with a zesty panache present from the opening lines...From tone to pace, MacDonald's choices here are right on the money: this is a cautionary tale that will be rip-roaring fun to tell, listen to, and act out. The father mouse's words of wisdom bear reiteration, and the short song/chant demands repeating. Crayon-colored, pop-eyed little mice and the green-eyed ginger cat stand out against the shades-of-gold-and-green background. Feathery brush-strokes add texture to Coffey's acrylics, and the fantastical setting suits the magical nature of this tale."

"MacDonald's retelling of this Limba tale is engineered for storytime success."

School Library Journal

"Feathery brush-strokes add texture to Coffey's acrylics, and the fantastical setting suits the magical nature of this tale."

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

From the Inside Flap

Mabela may be the smallest mouse in the village, but her father has taught her to be clever. And this cleverness comes in handy when the cat comes, inviting everyone to join the secret Cat Society.
