Disappointed that his friends seem to have forgotten his birthday, Little Mouse goes skiing by himself

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- It seems that Little Mouse's friends have forgotten his birthday, and so he climbs Mouse Mountain and enjoys the fabulous view and a warming cup of cocoa--by himself. The ski run down is really brisk, and Little Mouse takes quite a tumble into a snowbank. Lost, he climbs a big oak tree to get a better view. But still, everything looks the same as from down below--all trees! He snuggles into a crook of the big tree, closes his eyes and soon is fast asleep. He is awakened by someone calling his name and finds his three friends waiting for him below. They all ski back to Little Mouse's house where a wonderful party, planned by his friends, awaits him. Although the crispness of a bright winter day permeates each illustration, the warmth of genuine friendship overrides any chills that Little Mouse feels on his solitary perch. Young audiences will thrill with the adventuresome mouse, and fairly feel the wind whipping by as they fly down the mountain with him. They will feel too, the warmth and kindness of friendship through the sweeping watercolor illustrations and anticipatory text. In addition to this being a sound read-aloud for a group story time, it's perfect for second graders to share with younger siblings. A true ``Please read this one'' story. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH

From Publishers Weekly:

The characteristically innovative Hurd ( Mama Don't Allow ; Little Mouse's Big Valentine ) here offers a disappointingly bland variation on a routine plot: a birthday that has apparently been forgotten is finally celebrated with a surprise party. After making phone calls to three friends who reveal that they all have plans for the day, unfazed Little Mouse decides to spend his birthday skiing--all alone. Whizzing down the mountain, the little fellow takes a tumble; when he comes to a stop, he has no idea where he has landed. His three pals, all on skis, come to his rescue and lead Little Mouse back to his house, where a cake and decorations await him. Although Hurd's pictures are typically whimsical, his text here lacks sparkle and the story seems to drag. Overall, this is a rather lackluster Little Mouse tale. Ages 3-6.
