*Starred Review* Gobbled up by a passing wolf, a woodland mouse bemoans his fateâthat is, until his wailing awakens the stomach's resident duck, cozily tucked in a bed. The duck then invites the mouse to a candlelit breakfast of toast and jam, laid out on a tastefully set table. Kids will already be giggling over the stomach's unexpected amenities ("You'd be surprised what you find inside of a wolf," says the duck), as the mouse marvels at his new surroundings. The pair have an excellent day together, cooking and talking, and when the duck points out the advantageous lack of predators in the wolf's belly, the mouse concedes that this life is pretty good. But when their impromptu dance party gives the wolf a painful stomachache, his moans attract a nearby hunter. Sensing trouble, the duck and mouse sally forth to protect their home in spectacularly hysterical fashion. Barnett and Klassen's collaborations are always good for a laugh, and this one banks heavily on absurdity, to great effect. Klassen's mixed-media artwork transforms the wolf's interior into a delightfully domestic scene, and Barnett's writing is peppered with amusing details. This original pourquoi tale will make a fantastic choice for storytimes, as kids will want to dance along with the duck and mouseâwhen they're not rolling in the aisles, of course. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Beloved, acclaimed, and best-sellingâanything by this duo is going to go fast. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
