School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-In this follow-up to Miss Renee's Mice (Down East, 2001), Hoffman has spun another amusing tale. Here, the mice accompany the eccentric miniature maker to a dollhouse exhibition in Portland, ME. At first Miss Renee is reluctant to take them along, but relents when she recalls how they helped her to build some of her tiny furniture. She tells them they must pretend to be toy mice, so her customers will not be scared away. Rather than being afraid, the customers are so enchanted by the "toy" mice that they are more interested in buying them than the miniatures. By lunchtime, Miss Renee is fed up with all the attention that they are receiving and spitefully refuses to share her peanut-butter sandwich. The little creatures, overwhelmed by hunger, leap from their chairs and converge on a waiter who is crossing the room with a tray of delectable desserts, causing pandemonium in the exhibition hall. In the end, a wealthy woman who is hiding her own pet mice in the pockets of her coat offers to buy all of Miss Renee's merchandise and invites her to tea in the hotel dining room, where the two new friends and the rodents enjoy a delicious feast. Peterson's illustrations delightfully capture the old-fashioned feeling of the New England setting and portray the mice with appealing detail. Young dollhouse fans will enjoy this fanciful adventure.-Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
