PreSchool-Grade 1?Tyler, the town mouse, invites Charlie, the country mouse, to join him for an exciting day at the seashore. Perfectly content with his unexciting life, Charlie reluctantly meets his cousin at the appointed tree and hour, thereby launching an adventure unlike any he has ever experienced. After several narrow escapes at the shore, real tragedy strikes when a seabird carries Tyler off to be her chick's next meal. While Tyler fights off the hungry hatchling, fearless Charlie rappels down the cliff to his rescue. Back again on the porch of Charlie's quiet home, the mice agree that they both had been "...terribly, terribly BRAVE!" Charming watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations are separated by blocks of text, creating action-filled vignettes. Juxtaposition of the fully garbed mice against the world of people and objects will stimulate young readers' imaginations and introduce them to the realm of fantasy where fear and bravery are as tangible as in a child's own life.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

Ages 4^-7. Charlie and Tyler (the mouse world's version of the odd couple), first introduced in Craig's 1992 book The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse, return for another rollicking adventure. This time, boisterous Tyler invites his meek country cousin to join him for an exciting day at the seashore. A terrifying ride on an out-of-control motorboat and a narrow escape from a toy theater exhilarate Tyler but leave poor Charlie quite frightened and cowardly. Then an amazing thing happens: Tyler is swept away by a seabird, and Charlie risks life and limb to save him. Intricately detailed watercolors create an elaborate backdrop of lively seaside scenes that make the cousins' charming, fun-filled adventures a feast for the eyes. Lauren Peterson
