Little Mouse Gets Ready by Jeff Smith

Book Jacket

Can Little Mouse get ready in time?  There is a lot to do before Little Mouse is ready to go visit the barn.  Will he master all the intricacies of getting dressed, from snaps and buttons to Velcro and tail holes?

Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Jeff Smith and his determined Little Mouse charmingly animate all the smallest pleasures of this daily task.


Eh.  I get that dressing can be an important and proud achievement of little kids.  I appreciate the fantastic drawings.  But this book did nothing for me.  The joke at the end wasn't very funny, and a whole book revolving around the process of putting on clothes?  That's fine, but not exactly Monarch-nominated-worthy.

Two out of five tail holes.
