"Yee continues his Mouse and Mole series with another winning installment....As in the series' previous titles, catchy rhymes, brisk dialogue, onomatopoeic sounds, and winsome ink and watercolor illustrations will easily draw new readers to this seasonal, episodic friendship story."--Gillian Engberg, Booklist "Young readers will likely enjoy the simple irony and straightforward plot, while the many color illustrations reinforce the action and help them in in their transition to beginning chapter books."--School Library Journal Mouse and Mole, Fine Feathered Friends A 2010 Theodore Seuss Geisel Honor Award Winner A Brand New Day with Mouse and Mole "The stories are light, with simple plots, and the lively and expressive watercolor illustrations add energy and detail. A worthwhile addition to easy-reader collections."--School Library Journal Abracadabra! Magic with Mouse and Mole *"These two are a lovely addition to the pantheon of easy-reader pals."--School Library Journal, starred review "The friendly, cooperative tone of the text is reminiscent of the Frog and Toad series." - Kirkus "[T]he artwork nicely reinforces the story's action, the closeness between friends, and shared wonder in nature's magic."-- Booklist Upstairs Mouse, Downstairs Mole "The expressive bamboo-pen and watercolor with colored-pencil illustrations capture the humor of the situations as well as the emotions of the characters. With its controlled vocabulary, repetition, and humor, this tale of friendship also introduces opposites, homophones, and letter writing. A real winner."--School Library journal "Kids will become more proficient at reading and also come away with a lesson in friendship."--Booklist

Gr 1-3-The fifth title (Houghton Mifflin, 2010) in Wong Herbert Yee's beginning chapter book series about a pair of opposites who are best friends finds the pals at odds over how to cope with wintry weather. Optimistic and peppy Mouse wants to ice skate and sled. Grumpy and sluggish Mole prefers to stay snug and warm in bed. Since Mouse can't play with Mole, she creates a snowy version of him to frolic and skate with. Meanwhile, Mole grows bored in bed and peeks out at Mouse, noticing that her companion bears an uncanny resemblance to him. Misunderstandings ensue until Mole realizes that Mouse's friend is simply a snowy version of him and decides to take part in all the fun. Michele O. Medlin voices Mouse with species-appropriate, albeit sometimes overwrought squeakiness, and Mole with growly gruffness. Onomatopoeic sound effects sprinkled throughout the text are simply spoken by the narrator. Page-turn signals are optional. Yee's ink-and-watercolor illustrations perfectly complement the text. Children will enjoy this story about friendship and the winter adventures of an unlikely pair.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Library, Eagan, MN (c) Copyright 2012.
