- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 June #1
Two mice. One rock. Only one word: MINE! The blue mouse shouts it in blue text on the summit of the big rock, holding a flag like Sir Edmund Hillary. The disgruntled orange mouse down below entices him off the rock with a smelly piece of Swiss cheese on the end of a fishing pole. Crash, bangâblue mouse falls on his nose, and orange mouse grabs the flag, takes possession, and screams "MINE!" in orange text. The two pugilists make increasing demands for sole possession. In the surprising denouement, the gray "rock" is really a turtle's shell; with a loud "MINE!" he wanders off. Fighting over? Not so. Now the two mice eye the one remaining piece of Swiss cheese. This humorous portrayal of the difficulties of sharing will resonate, as even the youngest children will be able to "read" the story's one repeating word. The accessible art, popping characters, and generous white space combine with simple line drawings and bright colors, making for a fun read-aloud. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
