King Mouse
King Mouse | Cary Fagan
5 posts | 4 read | 6 to read
"A sweet, thoughtful tale of friendship, sharing and play, King Mouse begins when a mouse comes upon a tiny crown in the grass. The mouse puts the crown on his head, and when a bear subsequently comes upon him and asks if he's king, the mouse responds "Yes." This diminutive monarch settles into his new role very comfortably... until a snake comes upon a crown and claims she is queen. The mouse is not amused, especially when one by one the other animals find crowns and claim they are kings too. But when the bear can't find a crown, King Mouse make a most surprising decision."--

This adorable picture book has gorgeous art and a charming story. The art is old-fashioned and beautiful in sepia tones. The story is amusing and subtle in its approach to themes of leadership, specialness, and kindness. Appropriate for ages 3 to 7.

Delicate graphite drawings by Dena Seiferling are perfectly matched to the gentle tone of this story about instant celebrity and friendship. A heartwarming #Canadian #picturebook.

The bear put the ring of dandelions on his head.

(For my fellow dandelion enthusiasts.)

I'm slowly making my way through the #A2Z section of #BBRC. Here are the books I've read for letters B, C, K, and P. @LibrarianRyan

LibrarianRyan Yeah. I really liked the art work in King Mouse. And the Book with No Pictures was so unique. 1mo

🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟5 🌟
I really hope this book makes the Caldecott shortlist because it deserves it. It is beautifully illustrated. And the story is no slouch either. A mouse finds crown in the woods. Others see him wearing it and assume he is the king. But them more and more find crowns. Except for the bear. There is no crown for him. But maybe he will find something even better. Give this book an award already.
