Grade 3-4-In this third installment in the series, mice siblings Jake and Molly come to the aid of the newest class pet, a gerbil named Dexter, who has escaped from his cage and wants to learn how to live on the "outside." Molly and Jake are quickly forced to demonstrate their survival skills as the three rodents face various perils including a mousetrap, a flushing toilet, menacing sewer rats, and a nasty neighborhood cat that was introduced in a previous book. There is plenty of action in this easy chapter book, but an unclear beginning, weak characterization, and the sudden appearance of the cat well into the story lessen its accessibility as a stand-alone effort. Textured pencil drawings add little interest, but the appealing cover could draw in reluctant readers. Purchase where the series is already established.
