Review
PreS-K—Mouse is looking for a friend in this rhyming story. He is quite shy and rejects each potential friend—the frog is too jumpy and the bee too busy—but gets advice from a grumpy bird about an animal who is already his friend. When Mouse finally discovers who that might be, he learns that looks can be deceiving and is happy to have a friend. While this book has many merits (beautiful photography, well-paced rhymes, and large print suitable for early readers), its shortcomings are numerous. Why reject a potential friend for being too hairy? And aside from the fact that the animals talk, they also seem to be from a mishmash of ecosystems. Where are they? VERDICT Purchase only where this team's Swim, Duck, Swim is popular.—Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD --Melisa Bailey (Reviewed 04/01/2016) (School Library Journal, vol 62, issue 4, p125)
