Bonnie Pryor has written several novels for young readers as well as the popular picture books Grandpa Bear, Amanda and April, and The House on Maple Street. She lives in Gambier, Ohio.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2 Engaging mice star in this short fantasy about an ``odd couple''two brothers who have difficulties setting up housekeeping, but finally learn to accommodate each other. The mice act out some scenes a bit reminiscent of situations in Lobel's ``Frog and Toad'' stories (Harper); for example, one mouse pesters the other into telling him a story so that he can get to sleep, and later both mice can't stop eating their cookies. Although the story meanders a bit, the watercolor illustrations are so eye-catching that young listeners will focus on the art rather than the text. Particularly effective is the artist's ability to depict the effects of light and darkness on scenes, and to create the child-like expressions on the faces of the mice. One double-page spread is especially dramatic: the left page is black with one line of text in white, while the right page contains an illustration, trimmed in black, of a huge cat's face next to a tiny mouse brother in his night cap and shirt. The artwork makes this a good choice for library storytime or for lap-reading. Yvonne A. Frey, Peoria Public Library, Ill.
