Description

Snow! Cookies! Candy! Mouse loves snow days. When he's accidentally swept out the door and into the snow, Mouse has a blast ice-skating, sledding, and building snow animals—always just one step ahead of sly Cat. But above Mouse on a wire sit three cold birds who warn Mouse of Cat's approach. Now it is Mouse's turn to do something nice for his new friends.

Praise For Snow Day for Mouse (Adventures of Mouse #4)

"Cox's hapless Mouse doesn't let anything get him down, making him a character sure to enjoy a wide fan base. Ebbeler's comical acrylic illustrations are the stars here, depicting the undertakings of the accidentally swept-out Mouse as he explores and makes the most of the snowy landscape out of doors. . . . Ebbeler brings readers into the setting with everyday details—the ugly, crisscrossing power lines, boot treads and wonderfully textured fur and feathers, but it's the humorous details that will stand out to readers—don't miss the rooftop snow sculpture. Readers will look forward to taking this snow-day romp again and again."—Kirkus Reviews
 
"This fourth story about Mouse perfectly sums up the euphoria of fresh-fallen snow. Cox's text rhymes throughout, and reads aloud  . . . The author also combines descriptive words in a new and fresh way, such as snow being likened to 'mounds of mashed potatoes.' Ebbeler's illustrations expand on the text, with details everywhere to pore over, including a superhero snowman and a puffy, fluffy bedroom slipper. Mouse himself is a delight, with his thick glasses and striped pullover. While this book will be enjoyed in more northern states, it will be just as much fun to pull it out in the desert heat."—School Library Journal
