Review:

It might seem that nothing new could possibly be done with the counting book, but Katherine Burton and Kim Fernandes have created a little volume which is vivid, fresh, and thoroughly charming. While the illustrations in One Grey Mouse are what immediately attract attention, the simplicity of its text is very skillful. The pattern is number, colour, animal, in/on a colour, animal, object, rhyming so that ?Five pink pigs in yellow pig wigs, ? are followed by ?Six yellow bees in a green bee tree, ? then by ?Seven green frogs on a brown frog log.? The little rhymes are so well chosen as to seem inevitable. The book invites participation, in chanting it aloud, laughing at the antics, hunting for the mouse, stroking the cuddly bears, or, best of all, getting out the clay and trying it ourselves.--Quill and Quire

The inventive, amusingly plastic-like illustrations of the rhyming counting book, One Grey Mouse by Katherine Burton, are made with brightly colored clay. The scenes are increasingly action packed from the bouncing curls of ?Five pink pigs....? to the flying feathers of ?Nine white ducks in a red duck truck.?--Publisher's Weekly

Readers will be entranced from the minute they see one grey mouse greeting the day from its black teapot's doorstep on the cover. The mouse is snuggled into its teacup bed asleep on the first page, stretching awake on the title page, munching a carrot on the final page, increasingly endearing in its various ... compound incarnations. Equally captivating are the two black cats on an orange cat mat and the three orange snakes in a blue snake lake, up to ten and through several colours. Three book surprises and amuses with every page - the five pink pigs in yellow pig wigs are particularly winsome - drawing in young learners as well as those who already grasp counting and colours.--Kirkus Reviews

Ostensibly a vehicle for teaching numbers from one to ten as well as colors, One Grey Mouse also offers wonderful wordplay and a simple story as we watch the grey mouse scamper from picture to picture gathering flowers and a tasty carrot snack. Author and illustrator tie the images together nicely; grey mouse who lives in a black teapot, takes her nap in a cozy tea pot.The pictures are so tactile that little fingers will be trying to pick them off the page.--Toronto Parent
