El Ratoncito Pequeno / The Little Mouse

Publishers Weekly

PreSchool-Grade 1-Old-fashioned, crosshatch illustrations complement this bilingual nursery rhyme from the Hispanic tradition. The short rhyme tells the story of a little mouse that gets lured out of its hole by an offering of candy from a two-timing cat. The ending is not unlike traditional cautionary tales in English (e.g., "Three Blind Mice"): the cat eats the mouse. However, the last illustration showing an angel mouse implies a happy ending of sorts. This is a rhyme that children have recited frequently in some Latin American countries, and as such the book provides a valuable source of that oral tradition.
