From Booklist:

Gr. 1. In a very simple rhyming story in the Step into Reading series, a mouse tells a small girl in a pet store why mice make the best pets compared with all the other popular animals: Boas squeeze and lizards shed, but "Mice are gentle. / Mice are sweet. / Mice have tiny hands / and feet." The colorful pictures show that all the other pets do very well for themselves, even when the mouse tries to insult them. The girl grins as the puppies lick her face, but in the end the mouse fits just nicely in her pocket. With its perky voice and cuddly subject, this will appeal to first readers, as will the clear, colorful paperback design. Hazel Rochman
