Maria Polushkin Robbins is the author of several books for children. She lives in East Hampton, New York.
Jon Goodell is the acclaimed illustrator of A Mouse Called Wolf by Dick King-Smith, He lives in Norman, Oklahoma.
PreS-Gr. 2. In its 1978 edition, with artwork by Diane Dawson, Polushkin's story about a misunderstanding arising from ambiguous punctuation had a relatively long run for its money; this newly illustrated version further extends its life. The premise is as silly as ever: Baby Mouse sends his fussbudget mom into a tizzy when he cries, "May I have another, mother?" Another mother? Startled but eager to satisfy her little darling, she auditions potential mom replacements (a duck, frog, pig, and donkey) until Baby Mouse finally explains that he merely wanted a second bedtime kiss. Less freely sketched than Dawson's original watercolors, Goodell's oils will charm readers with meticulously brushed village scenes populated by smartly attired animals. The cover image of Baby Mouse jumping on his bed in frustration may mislead some parents into expecting a lesson about managing behavior; others may question the portrayal of mothers as featherbrained and desperate to please. Young ones, though, will simply delight in the easy-to-grasp joke and the clueless elders' reliance on a knowing, powerful child. Jennifer Mattson
