Mouse went out to get a snack by Lyn McFarland, illustrated by Jim McFarland

Mouse goes out to get a snack...and finds a feast!

His eyes are a bit bigger than his stomach as he counts his way up to 10 slices of chocolate cake...but when the cat appears, it's all lost and he ends up with just a bit of cheese - the perfect snack for a mouse.

This was a big hit at storytime. The mouse is humorous and occasionally needs to be "found" peeking behind walls. There's plenty of counting of various goodies, and the final desperate rush for the hole is a hilariously delightful ending.

Verdict: An excellent interactive title for storytime. Recommended.
