Reviews

Knapman peppers his text with juicy action verbs in a text that begs to be read aloud. A valuable lesson on egotism, with more than one echo of "The Gingerbread Boy."
--Kirkus Reviews

While arrogant Jake isn't the most likeable mouse in the world, readers who admire raw swagger will hope he escapes once more. He doesn't, but Ciraolo's sunny woodland paintings and Knapman's engaging storyteller's voice offer compensation.
--Publishers Weekly

Reminiscent of "The Gingerbread Man" or the Russian Kolobok folktales, a sprightly yarn with a moral about the danger of arrogance. Best shared one-on-one or in a small group setting.
--School Library Journal
