REVIEW: HAPPY FANCY RAT & MOUSE DAY!
I’m not sure “fancy” is the word I’d use to describe the mouse in this book, but let’s celebrate this kind, generous, magical mouse today, shall we?
Oh, how I love Vincent the mouse! Perhaps I have a sweet spot for him because my dad’s middle name was Vincent and he, too, was generous (not to mention able to build a house). But I think it comes down the overall magic of this book. Jonatan Stutzman weaves an endearing tale of a mouse whose home always has room for more, no matter who is in need. Isabelle Arsenault’s engaging gouache, ink, and cut paper illustrations give the reader so much to look at, from the floral endpapers to the expressive critters to the furniture inside the house. She even includes a cute die cut house for a bit of peek-a-boo. This story of kindness, inclusivity, and magic is a must for your bookshelf!
