About the Author:

Robert Kraus is the author of Little Louie the Baby Bloomer and Leo the Late Bloomer, illustrated by Jose Aruego, and the author and illustrator of dozens of books for children.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Big brother mouse evades the cat's invitations to ``come out and play.'' Monday through Friday, he helps shop, paint, wash, and so on. On Saturday, little mouse ingenuously accepts, and is rescued by big brother in dog disguise. Each day's action is introduced: ``Monday /Come out and play, little mouse.'' ``Tuesday /Come out and play, little mouse.'' The resulting jagged rhythm is broken when little mouse engages in cat-and-mouse, but action and rhythm come to a sudden conclusion on Sunday, when the mice can't play because, ``We're playing with our family.'' The plot is unresolved after a week of avoidance because the mice don't confront the cat or suggest that they will never play with him. Illustrations are vivid and busy; garish orange and red mark the sly advances of a leering cat. The landscape evokes recollections of Whose Mouse Are You? (Macmillan, 1970) and the family is familiar. However, in contrast to the simplicity and completeness of its predecessor, this title is frantic, pat, and unsatisfying. Carolyn Noah, Worcester Public Library, Mass.
