About this title

Synopsis:

A series of animals almost interrupt Sidney the mouse's plans for lunch.

From Publishers Weekly:

As Sidney the mouse waits for his date to bring a picnic lunch, a cat approaches. " 'I'm going to eat you, mouse,' said the cat. . . . 'I don't think so,' said Sidney, because at that moment, a dog ran up behind the cat." The dog threatens to chase the cat, but then a goose shows up and tries to bite the dog's tail, a fox comes next to gobble the goose, and so on. Each new animal appears from the right of a spread, crowding startled earlier arrivals off to the left. All the while, Sidney stands with carnival-barker aplomb atop a red brick fence, repeating "I don't think so" after each newcomer announces his threat. Lunch finally takes place, although Schindel's ( "Who Are You?" ) throwaway title does not indicate the tale's main events. The familiar narrative is redeemed somewhat by O'Malley's ( Cinder Edna ) alert, bouncy animals; the illustrator's well-conceived compositions, broken horizontally between the fence and clouded blue sky, also keep Sidney central to each scene. Yet although the deft caricatures possess a certain grace, they, like the story, ultimately prove generic. Ages 3-up.
