From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A complete version of the rhyme. Readers are introduced to the unfortunate rodents just as they begin their journey and follow the trio as they are turned away by an innkeeper, sleep out in the cold, have their eyes scratched out, and their tails cut off. But there's no reason to despair; they meet a doctor who restores their sight and rejuvenates their tails. The mice end their roaming, settle down, and live happily ever after. Cauley's colored-pencil drawings are a huge success; her characters are all imbued with lots of personality. The illustrations lay comfortably on the page working hand-in-hand with Ivimey's text. Very different from Galdone's work for the same story, these illustrations lend a soft refinement and gentleness to the participants and scenery. The last page contains the lyrics and the piano music to the song. All in all, a well-done offering with verses that may be unknown to young readers.

From Publishers Weekly:

Cauley's richly illustrated text offers the "complete version" of the popular nursery rhyme, and begins with three bold mice--fully endowed with the gift of sight and eager for adventure. Along the way they become three cold mice, three glad mice, three starved mice, three scared mice and, as everyone knows, three blind, tail-less mice. Luckily, however, the farmer's wife's knife doesn't end the story, for these plucky heroes meet a chemist who gives them a dose of "Never Too Late to Mend." The trio matures into three wise mice, "and soon their tails began to grow, / And their eyes recovered their sight, you know." The rodents themselves are thoroughly winning--slightly pudgy but very dapper--and the world they inhabit has a warm, golden glow. It's almost impossible not to sing the verses; a simple score is provided at the back of the book. A sweet addition to Cauley's collection of illustrated nursery rhymes ( Old MacDonald Had a Farm ; The Owl and the Pussycat ). Ages 4-8.
