Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable Easy Reader Reason for Reading: book is nominated for a cybils award. plus my son and I have read all the Toon Books and read each new one as they come out. Summary: This book is in the first level of Toon Books aimed at very early beginning readers. The style is mostly one frame per page, sometimes two. A basic story of Little Mouse dressing himself as his mother calls him to hurry up. But Jeff Smith adds a fun little twist to the "how to dress myself" book by adding a hilarious ending to the story that is sure to have kids roaring with laughter. The book contains all the usual trade marks one has come to expect from any Toon Book. Funny yet quality written story with fabulous illustrations by award-winning artist Jeff Smith. A book that is entirely kid friendly and while the plot may sound a bit babyish for older reluctant readers I'd say you could go up to age 9 with it due to the ending. Also this book has a higher vocabulary than the other two Toon Books at this level, while there are lots of short little bubbles with easy phonetic words to read, there are also some quite challenging bubbles with longer text and harder words such as "brothers", "underpants" and "through". Another top-notch entry in the Toon Books series, not our favourite at this level which would still be Jack and the Box, but a quality addition to the Toon Book family. Having a child with learning disabilities, I really appreciate this series. Ds often forgets he is struggling reading as he is having so much fun with the story. Recommended!
