Booklist Review

Ages 3^-6. Following the popular If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (1987), If You Give a Moose a Muffin (1991), and If You Give a Pig a Pancake (1998), Numeroff offers another lively cause-and-effect romp. When a boy takes a mouse to the movies, the mouse wants popcorn, which he strings together and wants to hang on the Christmas tree that the boy buys for him. On the way home, the mouse wants to play in the snow but then needs to warm up at home, where he sings Christmas carols and wants to decorate the tree. His popcorn string is missing, so he wants to make another, which reminds him of the movies . . . As with the previous titles, children will find both the bouncy speculative text and the colorful illustrations irresistible. In simple pictures filled with wit, Bond personalizes both the story and the characters, creating the earnest boy, eager to please his gleeful, hyper mouse. A charmer that's sure to get plenty of circulation. --Gillian Engberg

Horn Book Review

Winter holiday activities are the current order of business for the infamous demanding mouse. This time his delightfully frenzied activity begins not with a cookie but with movie popcorn, which he decides to string into chains, which make him want a Christmas tree, and so on. Festive details, such as the candy canes on the mouse's boxer shorts, add charm to Bond's homey ink and watercolor illustrations. From HORN BOOK Fall 2001, (c) Copyright 2010.
