A mouse eats a cheese which gets smaller until BIG BIG MOUSE 8 Dec 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
This is an excellent book which quickly became a library favorite for my daughter.
A mouse finds a big cheese and eats it all up. The first five pages are odd-shaped and resemble a cheese. As the mouse eats the cheese, bite marks appear and the pages get smaller until there are only crumbs. The next page is full size hiding the surprise pop-up ending.
The pop-up is very well done. It jumps out of the book and is larger that the page size emphasizing the difference in mouse sizes.
Several things appeal to me as a parent. The metaphor 'eat up and get big' is expressed humorously. The various words used to describe eating change on each page. The odd-shaped pages are easy for little fingers to find, turn and resist sticking together. And Big and Small are demonstrated but not over-emphasized.
This is the first in a four book series including: "The Green Leaf", "The Fuzzy Peach", and "The Silver Dandelion".
