"What's in there?/ A loaf of bread./ Where's my share?/ A mouse took it./ Where is the mouse?/ In her house." So goes this circular tale, a loose adaptation of a rhyme from the Opies' The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book (Oxford, 1955). White-bordered illustrations show idyllic pastoral scenes featuring ducks, squirrels, bunnies, and other creatures of field and hearth amidst colorful flowers, leaves, and berries. Each is a perfectly composed painting; each short question and answer is enclosed in a fine-lined box, deftly enhanced by a detail borrowed from the facing full-page illustration: picnic basket, mushroom, bird's nest, flowers. The large print, set in two types, adds to the artistic whole. Endpapers are covered with tiny objects taken from the illustrations. Even the book's size is just right. This well-wrought volume is certain to charm preschoolers, who will want to pore over the detail-filled pictures as they hear the story again and again. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Pub .
