Eekebee Yes, That’s Me! tells the story of a small crippled mouse who doe not believe he has a purpose in the world. Then one day, he meets a lion who later need help getting out of a trap, and Eekebee is the only one who can help him. This story reflects a crucial life lesson. The theme is one of bravery: children can be brave no matter what size they are, no matter if they have a disability; everyone is capable of doing great things in life. Pearson shows Eekebee’s character development throughout the episodic plot when he shows how Eekebee evolve from a timid mouse who always felt sorry for himself, to a brave mouse that saved Bazog the Lion King’s life. Mackintosh’s illustrations are always a colorful centerfold leaving no white background except where the exposition and dialog have been placed. This story is suitable for lower elementary children. Pearson also includes a discussion activity for parents and their children at the end of the story, which contains a religious element.
