Mice being second only to pigs as popular children's book beasts, this anthology of mousey prose and poetry will be welcomed by teachers for reading aloud and older children to read to themselves. Some of the contents are rather predictable, 'The Lion and the Mouse' and 'I think mice are rather nice' for instance, but several were new to me and there are one or two imaginative extracts from longer novels such as The Wizard of Oz and Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. A good, varied selection.
