Two Mice in Three Fables

by Lynn Reiser

Published by Greenwillow, 1995
32 pages
ISBN: 0-688-13389-4

Ages 3 - 6

Three delightful fables begin with the tale of outdoor mouse and an indoor mouse on a shared night of adventure in which they narrowly escape the predatory clutches of an owl and a raccoon, not to mention the slithering intentions of a hungry snake. In the two remaining fables, readers see the mice again as the story of the evening unfolds from the viewpoints of the owl, the raccoon and the snake. Superbly designed and charmingly told, Two Mice balances a simple, carefully rendered text with playfully inviting color illustrations that are as much a part of the storytelling as the words themselves. A skillful use of short sentences, repeated phrases, alliteration and rhyme makes for a child-friendly text with a comforting sense of familiarity. CCBC categories: EASY FICTION.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
