ELLEN STOLL WALSH is the author and illustrator of many award-winning early concept books for young children, including Mouse Paint and Mouse Count. She lives in upstate New York.
PreSchool-Grade 1-The mouse detectives are back in another eco-mystery. When all the bugs in their meadow suddenly disappear, the mice interview a sparrow and a rabbit and observe some butterflies, finally discovering that the bugs have used camouflage to hide from their predators. The story is simple and unremarkable, but Walsh's illustrations add interest. The distinctive cut-paper collages step nicely off the page for a 3-D look, and the earthy greens and browns are gentle and calming. A note on insects and camouflage is included.
