WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : I’m not sure how I managed to overlook one of Judy Cox’s “Mouse” books. I LOVE her brave little mouse character. In this book, Mouse goes in search of what could be making such delicious smells when he discovers a Cinco de Mayo street celebration and decides to join in the fun! Illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler returns once again to bring Mouse to life in this fast paced adventure young readers will enjoy. A great addition to any library!
