I REALLY wanted to like this book. The concept is awesome, the illustrations are pretty cute (especially with the cut outs), but the rhyme scheme just felt off and whenever I try to read it out loud it bothers me that sometimes the animal name rhymes… and sometimes they don’t.

I think the idioms in this book are very fun, and the illustrations are cute, too! The only thing is that I wish the animal names were included in the rhyme sequence—it doesn’t seem to flow as well as it could. I love the different cutouts on each of the animals!

Who Wrote Quiet As a Mouse: And Other Animal Idioms

author & illustrator
Chiêu Anh Urban

I am a children's book novelty author and illustrator, and enjoy creating playful books that provide fun learning and exploration for the youngest readers. When I'm not sketching or designing, I'm most likely baking and crafting. I was born in Saigon, Vietnam. At the fall of the Republic of Vietnam in 1975, my family and I were forced to leave our home, and fled on the American Challenger, a ship that carried over 7,000 refugees. Our journey to America took over four months before we finally arrived in Northern Virginia, where I grew up. I later acquired a BFA in Communications Art and Design from VCU School of Arts in Richmond, and began a career as a graphic designer. I now work from my studio in suburban Maryland. Many thanks for your support!
