Three by the Sea by Mini Grey - ADVISABLE

Grey, Mini Three by the Sea 32 pg. Alfred A. Knopf, 2010. PICTURE BOOK. $17.99. Mouse, Cat, and Dog live in a little house by the sea, each of them responsible for a different daily task. One day, a fox from the Winds of Change Company comes to call. With his visit, he brings discord and discontent...but he also brings something that may not have happened any other way--change. 
Some parts of the book didn't seem very cohesive, and the message of cooperation, working together, and self-examination might be missed by some of the intended audience, but it could be a great book to use to spark some discussion. The illustrations were fantastic with their collage quality and variety. EL-ADVISABLE. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
