Praise for Abracadabra! Magic with Mouse and Mole
"These two are a lovely addition to the pantheon of easy-reader pals."—School Library Journal, starred review

Praise for Upstairs Mouse, Downstairs Mole
"The expressive bamboo-pen and watercolor with colored-pencil illustrations capture the humor of the situations as well as the emotions of the characters. With its controlled vocabulary, repetition, and humor, this tale of friendship also introduces opposites, homophones, and letter writing. A real winner."—School Library journal
"Kids will become more proficient at reading and also come away with a lesson in friendship."—Booklist
"In their latest round of endearing adventures, best pals Mouse and Mole suit up excitedly for a day of springtime bird-watching, but before they can focus their binoculars, each of their subjects flies away. Compromising and cooperating are the themes as the friends find elaborate, creative solutions to their problems and make a final project that celebrates their individual talents. Once again, transitional readers will enjoy the well-paced text’s wordplay (including lots of puns); the gentle, realistic friendship conflicts; and the ink-and-watercolor artwork that captures the story’s humor, action, and feeling."— Gillian Engberg, Booklist

Overall it's a great book and belongs in every child's library!
The illustrations are very well done and show details that can really be related to a real forest and real animals/birds. The earthy tones and the watercolor make this a very calming book and one that can interest any early reader.
The format of the book is very well done and is a good book to help readers transition from picture books to chapter books. The story has about 3 parts and they are distinct enough to be separate parts and give the reader that easy transition they need. The words are easily understandable and it is something that any student can pick up and read.
