About the Book



This classic tale gets a new look with an updated cover. "Nobody's Mouse" is feeling melancholy that he is alone and without his family. But down-in-the-dumps mouse soon becomes a mouse of action as he pumps up his self-esteem and courage. Color illustrations.



Book Synopsis



A lonely little mouse has to be resourceful to bring his family back together.

In a series of delightfully imaginary achievements, "nobody's mouse" transforms himself into the beloved hero of his mother, father, sister, and brand-new baby brother.

In their very first collaboration, Robert Kraus and Jose Aruego give charm and validity to one of childhood's more difficult experiences. Tender and catchy, Robert Kraus's rhyming text, combined with Jose Aruego's large, vibrantly clever illustrations, makes for a storytime classic.



Review Quotes




Kirkus Reviews The quintessential picture books can't be plotted out or put into any other words; ergo, Whose mouse are you?/Nobody's mouse./Where is your mother?/Inside a cat./Where is your father?/Caught in a trap... But that's all we'll tell you -- the ending is too good to give away...

Booklist ...[A]n absolute charmer...

School Library Journal ...[O]ne of the simplest -- and best -- picture boks to come along in years...

The Horn Book ...[A] story-hour treat...
