I have long loved this book and read it literally hundreds of times. The likable Little Mouse, loaded with personality, expends great effort and imagination to protect the strawberry from the thieving bear. Use of varying font sizes cues the reader and adds to the drama and suspense as do the delightful illustrations. There is one illustration in particular, where the mouse is desperately tugging on the stem of the strawberry, in which the manner of illustrating--visual vibrations-- communicate perfectly the mouse's actions. With plenty of suspense and humor along the way, this story has a satisfying ending, although it does leave one wondering just who has been speaking to the mouse.

One of my absolute favorite children's books growing up, and it continues to be a favorite! As a fellow strawberry lover, I love the suspense the story builds with mouse thinking the big, hungry bear is going to come after his perfectly ripe and juicy strawberry. Simple, classic tale!
