Rave Reviews for The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail

“This clever yarn should delight fans of animal adventure stories.” —Booklist, starred review

“Readers will gleefully suspend disbelief as they trace Mouse Minor’s exciting journey.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“With a plucky hero, exciting plot…Peck’s latest is a gentle homage to old-school adventure tales.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Peck’s whimsical and tongue-in-cheek storytelling makes The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail a must for reading aloud.” —The Deseret News

“Children love the idea of tiny, hidden worlds—of pixie, fairy or animal societies that exist alongside our own. Richard Peck taps into this affection with The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail . . . a lively tale.” —The Wall Street Journal

“This change of pace from Peck’s quintessentially American stories will delight readers with its British pageantry seen through the eyes of a feisty, insightful narrator.” —Horn Book
“This mouse-sized identity quest sparkles.”—Kirkus Reviews “A more-than-perfect book to share aloud with young readers.” —Christian Science Monitor

“Peck creates a pleasantly detailed, cozy Victorian mouse world. There’s some of Stuart Little’s appeal to Mouse Minor’s exploits.” —BCCB

“Perfect for reading aloud to intermediate grade students or for recommending to readers who enjoy a mystery or a good adventure story. Recommend to fans of The Tale of Despereaux.”—Library Media Connection
