What's Space Mice About

Publisher Summary

When two hungry mice spot a giant yellow ball of cheese in the night sky, they get right to work building a rocketship so they can take a big bite out of that glowing full moon. After sailing through starry skies, the mice arrive at the feast of their dreams–and soon the moon isn’t so full anymore! Simple, rhythmic text makes this a great read-aloud for future astronauts.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.75 / 7.0

What a run read aloud! The ideas of mice love cheese + moon is made of cheese + building a rocket to the moon are brilliantly combined and executed on in this story with adorable illustrations and great rhyming text. I love all the fun details in the illustrations, particularly the use of a cheese dome on the moon!
