When a mouse turns two, friends and family throw a cowboy theme party in Birthday Mice!, the fifth title in the Holiday Mice series by Bethany Roberts, illus. by Doug Cushman. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-At his second birthday party, a cowboy-costumed mouse creates havoc while galloping around on his wooden horse. A gigantic balloon pops, his horse breaks, and his birthday cake is smashed. Friends save the day by substituting "cowboy vittles" (flapjacks) for the cake, and a kind squirrel offers to be the birthday mouse's "horse." This is a difficult book to read aloud; the rhyming text doesn't scan, and sometimes the rhymed word doesn't appear until pages later. Cushman's animals are personable, but twice he places the protagonist in four panels across a spread, which is bound to confuse preschoolers, who will see four separate mice. And children will wonder how, in one set of panels, a tiny pair of cowboy boots is made to fit on the mouse's enormous feet. Not a first purchase.-Eileen Sheridan, Bridgeport Public Library, CT (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
