Review: There's a Mouse Hiding in This Book!
There's a Mouse Hiding in This Book! by Benjamin Bird
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This Tom and Jerry interactive picture book holds a surprise on each page! Where is Jerry hiding? On the title page, on the back cover, or somewhere in between? Little readers will howl with delight each time they open the covers and try helping Tom find the mischievous mouse. Perfect for storytime.
A light, quirky "meta-fictional" picture book series using the well known, timeless characters of Tom and Jerry. Young readers will whoop with delight at the story and artwork, but parents and caregivers will also appreciate the humorous and gentle introduction to the process of reading and the parts of the book.
Classic Tom & Jerry mischief still loved by children. My 8 year old son and I read this book together tonight. He was very entertained and laughed many times through out the mischief Tom and Jerry cause each other.
I like the bright illustrations in the book and live how one page leads to the other making the reader a part if the story with directions like "Shake the book, turn the page more slowly" etc. The book would have been best for younger children, but even an 8 year old thought it was a fun and funny concept.
It seems that generation after generation loves Tom, Jerry, & the never ending chase.
