Ahhhh.

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.

Suzanne Ahhh! My mouse so had a British accent when I read this aloud to my daughter and I was going to write in my goodreads review "Did anyone else's mouse have a British accent?"


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


Dolly Mine did too - and I thought it was just my crazy imagination!


Shawna Oh yes, the mouse was oh, so very British! LOL
