Being a mouse is not easy when you have a giant shadow constantly giving you away during kitchen raids and making the other mice keep their distance, but George discovers that being an individual can be pretty great after all

PreSchool-Grade 1-- George the mouse is an outcast. His giant shadow betrays him during games of hide-and-seek and frightens his playmates. Despite his best efforts to solve the problem, he can't escape his looming shadow. Banished from a nocturnal pantry raid for fear he will betray the mice's presence, George follows in the dark and saves the others from the cat by scaring the feline away. This familiar plot of outcast turned hero has been a staple of children's stories from Andersen's The Ugly Duckling to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It's hard to fault the moral, but Severn offers little originality. The illustrations are competent but unexciting. In short, there's little to make George's world memorable for the picture book crowd. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
