Little Mouse's Big Breakfast by Christine Pym- ADVISABLE

Pym, Christine Little Mouse’s Big Breakfast. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2016. $15.99. Content: G.

Little Hungry Mouse needs some breakfast.  He checks his surroundings but finds that there is nothing to be found at home.  Luckily, Little Mouse knew exactly where to go.  He hurried across the lawn, up the drainpipe to the house window and hopped through an open window.  As Little Mouse hunts for food, he doesn’t have to look far before he finds tasty treats of all sizes and colors.  Just as he is about to leave, he spots just one more PERFECT item that he simply can’t leave without. What is that something special? And will taking time to retrieve it cause Little Mouse more trouble than it is worth? 

This is an adorable book that children will love.  The illustrations are captivating and the expressive Mouse it priceless.  The ending has a surprise twist that little ones will enjoy.
