About this title

Synopsis:

It's Mouse's birthday and all of his friends--Cat, Dog, Cow, Horse, and even Farmer--have come to his party. However, Mouse's house is small--and when Mouse blows out the candles on his cake, they all help, with surprising results. Full-color illustrations.

From Publishers Weekly:

These prolific, versatile collaborators ( Dinosaur Dances ; the Commander Toad series) here offer a disarming tale, populated by a cast with all the zest of the best nursery rhyme creations. Fashioned from bits of hay, Mouse's house sits in the corner of a barn. It is "very small, very small. Hardly any room at all / For anyone but Mouse." But on the tiny creature's birthday, some nattily dressed visitors come bearing an amusing array of gifts, and--delightfully implausibly--all manage to cram into the diminutive dwelling. As Cat, Dog, Cow and Horse snuggle close to Mouse, "In comes Farmer on his knees, / Carrying a brown valise, / Trying very hard to squeeze / Into Mouse's house." The overcrowding ends the second that Mouse overzealously blows out the candle on his cake, causing the sides of his house--and all his furnishings and gifts--to fly into the air. As the hay settles, the startled guests kick up their heels for what turns out to be a dual celebration. Typically spirited and endearingly humorous, Degen's art is the ideal match for Yolen's jaunty rhyme. The alternation of large-scale likenesses (in sprawling, borderless paintings) with smaller, neatly framed vignettes proves beguiling--and utterly appropriate. Ages 3-6.
