The Tale of Two Mice caught my attention at the library this morning - it is an oversized hardcover book with two raggedy looking mice on the cover. When I casually flipped through the book, I found that it had a couple of hidden surprises in the form of lift-the-flaps. However, these surprises were not too childish and I knew my first grader would delight in them.
She loves this book! We read it tonight and the story of two young mice, siblings Billy and Bo, is one of adventure. Billy and his older brother Bo have run out of food and venture out of their mouse hole one night, in search of food in a large manor house. Billy is a scaredy mouse and is afraid of sounds and strange sights, and this behavior greatly annoys his older brother. Little does Bo know that some of Billy's fears are not completely unfounded, and there could be something sinister stalking the brothers through the dark house.
The lift the flap feature is quite fun, and I was thrilled that my daughter has not outgrown the gleeful anticipation of lifting a flap to discover what awaits within:-) A delightful book full of unexpected surprises!
Billy and Bo went off to the dining room and looked behind a curtain. Finally they found "A feast!" There was a banquet waiting for them to dip into with everything from nuts to cheese. They loaded things into their cart and picked up some sticks in the living room. Billy was still worried about the kitty cat, who really was under the chair. Bo yelled at him, "Don't be such a BABY!" Billy was a bit scared of everything and it wasn't long before he thought there was something under a blanket. Whoa! There really was something under there and it just POPPED up out at him. "Eeeeeeeeek!"
This is a wonderful book about Bo and Billy (and the kitty) that little hands are going to love to explore! The book is a lot of fun with the little cat and mouse game that we can see going on. There are many flaps and one pop-up for children to enjoy. The pop-up kitty alone was well worth the price of the book. The story was charming and the complementary artwork was perfect. I'd only have one small recommendation and that would be to get some clear packing tape to reinforce the edges of the flaps because this book is going to be read time and time again! "Eeeeeeeeek!"
