What people are saying about
"There's a Mouse on My Head!"

A few of our reviews:

"Perfectly delightful! Young children can follow the story simply using the wonderful illustrations. Early readers will have fun with this story of one boy's active imagination. I especially like that the book shows a good example of positive family relationships. I highly recommend "There's a Mouse on My Head"

J. Dickler

"If you’re a 'kid' who’s ever tried to get out of eating your peas, you will love There’s a Mouse on My Head. A boy uses his toy mouse and his imagination to try to get out of eating his peas, as well as his bread and cheese, at dinner. But when Grandma agrees, she also includes his cherry pie! Sister gets into the act, and things get a bit out of hand until Grandma decides that it’s bedtime for mouse. There’s a Mouse on My Head is written in beautiful rhyme with a playful rhythm. Delightful illustrations add another dimension to the story with the cat in the background."

Peggy Archer

"Delightful story young children are sure to enjoy. The creative mind of a little boy makes him think he has found the perfect way to avoid eating various foods on his dinner plate, that is until grandma arrives. Grandma has a little trick up her sleeve. You will have fun reading this to your little ones. It will be especially fun for a grandma to read it to her young grand children. It reads like a rhyming poem and the illustrations are wonderful."


What a charming book! A cute story that allows for toddler discussions on food and manners. Works terrific as a nighttime story as well, ending in "Goodnight". Illustrations are absolutely lovely! A sure favorite of my two year old daughter.


The St. Louis Jewish Light:


“Mouse!” is the story of a special relationship between a grandparent and a grandchild. The grandmother is the protagonist. She’s a caring caregiver, a tough but cagey disciplinarian. The grandchild is the antagonist. He’s a clever kid who has no intention of eating his peas but has no such issues with pie. 


A stuffed mouse comes to life, and a wisecracking sister enters the picture. High jinks ensue, and lessons are learned.


Bill Motchen, St. Louis Jewish Light
