Look Out, Mouse! by Steve Bjorkman- OPTIONAL

Bjorkman, Steve. Look Out, Mouse!, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $14.95. Content: G. It’s dinner time and the farmer has forgotten to feed his horses. A kind little mouse decides to help out and nibbles a hole in the horse’s feed so they can eat. Suddenly, the mouse is being chased by all manner of animals. A horse neighs which finally gets the farmer’s attention and stops the wildly running animals. This is to the mouse’s advantage because the farmer happens to be a giant slob and the mouse gets to have a feast while he is distracted. This is an easy reader and my summary expands on the story much more than what is actually in the book. I wasn’t impressed with the illustrations or story line (even for an easy reader). I just don’t see needing to spend money on this one. PRE-K, K-3- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by: Shay, School Librarian
