  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 February #2
    For Aunt Prunella's birthday party, Sophie (a little mouse) helps Mama prepare a special dessert: chocolate kisses made with pistachio buttercream. Sophie wants to eat hers immediately, but she must wait for tomorrow's party. Late that night, she visits the kisses, frets over whether there will be enough, and makes place cards to sort things out: 10 people, 10 chocolate kisses. But the next morning—surprise!—Aunt Martha arrives from Saskatoon. Worried about whether there will be a kiss for her, Sophie is too upset to eat, until her perceptive Granny saves the day. Written with short sentences, simple words, and a bit of dialogue, the story includes appropriate details but focuses on the essentials. The artwork, created with ink, watercolor, and gouache, uses spring colors to create a cheerful look. For children who are learning their numbers, the illustrations offer counting opportunities that are integral to the story. From the likable main character to the happy ending, the fourth book in the Sophie series is a satisfying choice for young children. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
