A second book from the award-winning author/illustrator team, Tim Beiser and Rachel Berman. As charming as BRADLEY MCGOGG, we think this story will sell at least as well, but possibly even better!
 
A charming story about self-acceptance, and love lost and found, told through the eyes of a dear little mouse, and her possibly-not-so-handsome suitor, Mole. Chramingly illustrated, cleverly told, the message is timeless, and the illustrations endearing.

Editorial Reviews

Finalist - 2013 Governor General’s Literary Award (Children's Illustration) “…Miss Mousie’s Blind Date is a timeless tale about inner beauty … an adorable story of mouse love, with a quirky, dramatic main character that children will find funny…. The story rolls off the tongue … Berman’s illustrations are adorable, in a classic muted colour scheme style reminiscent of Frog and Toad….” —Recommended, CM“…Beiser's sprightly text has warmth, heart and a valuable lesson. Berman's pictures, in watercolor and gouache on rag, suggest Beatrix Potter, ably matching the crisp elegance of the story. Wonderful.” —Starred, Kirkus Reviews“The text surrounds delicate watercolor and gouache paintings reminiscent of Beatrix Potter, which add plenty of charm to this winsome rhyming tale. …[A] lesson in true love from wise animals.”—Booklist“Written in verse and accompanied by cunning and detailed illustrations, this picture book shows children that it is always wise to be yourself. With plenty of gentle humor throughout, the story demonstrates beautifully how badly things can go wrong if you try to be someone you are not.” —Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review
