Mouse found a car on the side of the road. Who does it belong to? Mouse is joined by many animal friends and together they head out to find the car’s owner.
A funny story about owning and sharing. For children ages 3 years and up.-Guided Reading Level I
"Mouse, in cap, goggles, and a jaunty scarf, is driving a bright red car. When Chicken admiringly says, “What a nice car,” Mouse agrees and explains he’s seeking its owner; would Chicken like to come along? Soon, Penguin and Kangaroo (with its joey) follow suit and join Mouse’s mission. However, en route, Mouse loses his hat (“Whooooshh!”), which blows right to lonely, forlorn Elephant, who’s quite surprised (“I wonder who this hat belongs to?”). When Mouse and Elephant meet, it proves rewarding, both in terms of items being returned to their owners and in discovering that experiences are more enjoyable when shared with friends old and new (especially a roomy, bright red car). Complementing the brief, uncomplicated, and droll prose, which incorporates sound effects, questions to the reader, and repetition, are vibrant full-bleed illustrations featuring blocky shapes in bold colors, expressive animal characters, and entertaining background details. While how Mouse found the car—or how Elephant lost it—remains unexplained,the accessible text, eye-catching visuals, and underlying positive message make for an entertaining read for young ones." -Booklist
