Mousetropolis by R. Gregory Christie- OPTIONAL

Christie, R. Gregory. Mousetropolis, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $16.95. Everyone needs a little vacation sometimes and that is the case for City Mouse after a particularly noisy night at home. He goes to visit his friend Country Mouse and they go out to have some fun. Walking through the quiet forest is a little creepy, but the jamboree is fun. At night, City Mouse finds it too quiet to sleep and he and Country Mouse decide to hitch a ride on a train back to the city. I felt like this story was all mixed up. It jumped from place to place without purpose and didn’t sink deep enough into a real story for me to be at all invested. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
