Little Mouse Gets Ready


Little Mouse Gets Ready
by Jeff Smith
31 pages
beginning comic book
New York : Toon Books, c2009

Bone creator Jeff Smith is going in an entertaining new direction with this comic book/graphic novel for early readers. Little Mouse is excited to go to the barn with his family, he just has to get ready first. Mama is getting impatient. Doesn't she understand that it takes time to get all those clothes on?
A very fun comic book for those just learning to read as well as to read aloud to small children. The full-page comic panels are adorable and the word bubbles are super easy to read. The ending was a laugh-out-loud moment for both myself and my three-year-old son. Let's hope Jeff Smith gives us more tales about Little Mouse, I know I will read them.
