5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story, with beautiful illustrations 18 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This book has been a real success in my family. Both my children (2, and 4) have really enjoyed saying the catchphrase, and finding the 'eyes' and the cat shadow, not to mention the mouse! There is a lovely twist in the tale, it doesn't talk down to children and is a pleasure for an adult to read. Very highly recommended for several different age/maturity levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful children's book 27 Nov 2004
A beautiful book that enthralled my 3-year old, engaging his attention and encouraging him to take part in the story. Fabulous illustrations and simple repetition make each page a delightful experience for grown-ups and children to share. You can read the book again and again and find something new each time - for newcomers, whose are those scary, mysterious eyes on each page?

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting Book 4 Feb 2011
By Shiraz
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a really enchanting story with a lyrical prose and absolutely stunning illustrations. There is plenty to discuss and lots of things for children to speculate about and clues to search for. There is a simple refrain which younger children love: 'Mouse, look out!' and an amusing and unexpected twist at the very end of the book.

My daughter, now 6, still really enjoys this story and remembers the shock she got the first time she discovered 'the eyes' watching events on each page.

I had to purchase this book from America as it seems to be out of print in the UK. If it does reappear on the British market, I would recommend grabbing a copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mouse, Look Out! 25 Oct 2001
By B. Boster - Published on Amazon.com
A mysteriously abandoned mansion serves as a terrifically spooky setting for a cat-and-mouse tale. As the mouse slips through the "gate no one opened" and the "door no one knocked on," we fairly shout on every fourth page, "MOUSE, LOOK OUT! THERE'S A CAT ABOUT"--until the end, that is, when we shout for the cat to look out for someone else with orange eyes. The suspense of the simple plot is marvelously enriched by the rhythmic, rhyming verse, darkly realistic paintings, and the strange mystery--never explained--of why the long-ago owners of this ghostly mansion abandoned it with all their possessions still inside. This gives the book an unspoken subplot for imaginative ruminations on the side. The artist's sense of perspective brilliantly accentuates the vulnerability of the mouse and the menace of the cat, and end papers showing an ominous front view of the house in the beginning and a satisfying conclusion in the back garden at the end are unifying elements. An edge-of-your-seat tale just right for story time, slumber parties, and Halloween.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bedtime Winner 1 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
My 3 year old fell in love with this book immediately. The rhyme and rhythm of the poem make this an excellent bedtime story with its almost song like effect. The illustrations are clear yet have such depth that my child will stare at each page for several minutes, picking out the many details. If your child had fun finding the mouse in "Good Night Moon", he will love looking for the mysterious creature that watches from the shadows as the story unfolds.Though the plot could be viewed as kind of scary, the immages are depicted in very gentle and innocent drawings that leave the reader with a sense of comfort, not fright.

5.0 out of 5 stars a change of pace 27 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a refreshingly different children's book, with a playfully spooky atmosphere. The text includes words not often seen in toddler and young reader books, such as "creeping" and "creaking" with beautifully eerie illustrations. My son borrowed this book from the library so many times that we just had to buy it. As parents, we love the opportunity to read something to him that is not only verbally appealing but also visually enticing.

My two year old learned how to make shadows! He warns us about lurking cats and scurrying mice. The drama unfolds slowly and we find more in each illustration every time we read. This book is destined to become a classic.
