I dare you NOT to give the mouse a British accent if you read this aloud. I just DARE you. Go ahead, try. It's not possible.

This is a lovely book -- sweet without being sappy or annoying. There are also some great opportunities for learning some new vocabulary words -- VAMOOSE! INSUFFERABLE! -- which are easily explained in context. Perhaps a bit long, page-wise, for preschool storytime, but I'm going to try it out with some kids tomorrow and see how it goes. Perhaps the story'll hook them enough that they'll not get squirmy.

Mandy Sue My mouse too has a british accent when I read this book!!
