Pre S-Gr 2--Mimi and her mouse siblings are at the center of these picture books. In the first title, Mimi wants to build Chez Mouse where, as she says, "I can be me!" First her sisters, then later her brothers, gather material and try to construct a dream home, each adding something to please themselves. Mimi doesn't like either of these abodes and finally builds one for herself. The book is short and sweet, though Mimi's refrain "I want a mouse-house where I can be me" gets a bit tiresome. The second title has a stronger story line. Mimi and her siblings go on a picnic. While the others are playing, the youngest one disappears. Much looking and crying ensues, until he is finally found, having fallen into the dessert. Picnic also uses repetition, but children are more likely to enjoy this book as they watch Hugo eat the dessert while his family searches for him. Harte’s colorful illustrations are detailed and engaging but at times awkward. Additional purchases.
