If You Take A Mouse To The Movies By: Laura Numeroff Illustrated by: Felicia Bond
You'll see in this book if you take a mouse to the movies it will lead you on a very exciting and tiring journey. The mouse leads the boy on a sequence of activities that will have you laughing all the way! It just so happens with everything he asks for it will in the end have him asking for the same thing he did at the beginning leading right back to where he started!
The book set around Christmas time has lots of winter fun sprinkled throughout the pages. The illustrations will capture little readers attention with all the sparkle and detail paid to every page! My girls love when the mouse makes Christmas ornaments, many, many, Christmas ornaments! They especially love the angel mouse he makes.
This is one of three books about this adorable mouse. All written in the familiar fun way watching the little mouse going in a circle of activities to find himself back where he started!
