Mouse feels lower than low. His forest friends, including Badger, Hedgehog, Rabbit, and Mole, all knock themselves out trying to cheer up the little guy, to no avail. In the end, all Mouse really needs is a hug! Jed Henry's wonderful illustrations, in watercolor pastels and colored pencils, beautifully complement the spare text. Readers will love seeing all the exuberant animal antics in trees, ponds, and even underground tunnels as they try to distract their gloomy friend. A charming antidote for the blues.
Jed Henry , illustrator of Mike Huckabee's best-selling Can't Wait till Christmas, loves animals so much that he always thought Shark Week was more fun than Christmas. He lives by the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Provo, Utah. Visit him at or his blog at .
