From Publishers Weekly:

"Boo hoo, boo hoo," cry Joe the big bear and Sam the small mouse throughout this story. picture book by the creators of The Snow Party. The two animals meet and decide they'd like to be pals, but they can't agree on a single thing. Both are looking for a dwelling place, but they can't live together because Joe wants a big house and Sam prefers a little house. They can't play ball together because Joe likes to play football while Sam prefers baseball. The two can't ride bikes together and they can't play music together, and the friendship seems doomed . . . until they learn that they have something very important in common--a love for ice cream. Although working with a frequently-used theme, de Regniers's engagingly direct text and Myers's spirited illustrations provide a fresh outlook. Ages 3-7.

From School Library Journal:

Joe the bear is big and Sam the mouse is small, but when they meet at the gym, they decide to be friends. They soon find, however, that their tastes are opposite. Joe likes to ride slowly; Sam prefers to go fast. Joe likes violin music, Sam likes drums. Each discovery leads to tears as they learn of one more thing they can't share. They then discover that they both go for ice cream at three o'clock every day, an activity they can share. This 1965 text, with its timeless and simple storyline, has been newly illustrated. The pictures are bright, bold, colorful, and large; the book easily could be used in story programs for young children. --Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
