Product Details

Praise

With a nicely cadenced text in four short chapters, wonderfully fresh ink-and-watercolor illustrations, and a funny climax, this story works equally well for young independent readers or as a read-aloud for younger children.
—Booklist

Mouse draws upon the sheer force of his cheery goodwill to chip away at Bear's resolve, ultimately succeeding…Reads as a well-pitched combination of humorous dialogue and omniscient commentary.
—Kirkus Reviews

Whimsical full-color ink and watercolor illustrations hilariously depict the yin and yang of enormous, cantankerous Bear and tiny, merry Mouse. A sprinkling of colorful, out-of-the-ordinary vocabulary words and phrases adds welcome spice to the narrative. Fluent early readers will be pulled into this title by the appeal of its universal subject, entertaining characters, and the satisfying story.
—School Library Journal
