Praise For Mother, Mother, I Want Another

"A CLASSIC BEDTIME STORY gets a well-earned reissue with handsome new art. Mrs. Mouse tucks baby mouse in and gives him a goodnight kiss - then, responding to his request for 'another, mother,' she hustles out to round up alternative parents."
- Kirkus Reviews, Starred
