Miss Mouse Takes Off

by Jan Ormerod

Published by U. S. edition: HarperCollins, 2001
24 pages
ISBN: 0-688-17870-7

Ages 2 - 5

Only a few words accompany Omerod's pictures in a contemporary story about the plane trip of a little girl, her mother, and her stuffed animal friend "Miss Mouse." Throughout each procedure so common to all flights, this child carries her well-worn, floppy legged, easily recognizable traveling companion. They go through airport check-in, security procedures, boarding, eating airplane food, watching an airplane movie, and becoming somewhat acquainted with passengers in nearby seats. At one point during the flight Miss Mouse can't be found. The youngest children seeing this book will recognize the alarm the young traveler feels when her stuffed animal friend is misplaced. But they'll also know exactly where Miss Mouse was left, even though our stalwart fictional traveler momentarily panics. Once again Ormerod proves that she knows her preschool audience well.
