School Library Journal - 03/01/2015 PreS-Gr 1—This beginning reader is packed with humor and clever visual clues that expand the story beyond its limited word count. The result is a satisfying book as well as one that will afford new readers the opportunity to practice their independent skills. When Farmer Fred falls asleep at dinnertime, his hungry horse looks hopefully to a mouse that is gnawing at his feed bag. A hole in it means food for the horse and a feast for the mouse, too. But a cat appears in the barn, forcing the mouse to make a quick getaway. He is subsequently pursued by a host of other animals, and when the horse, dog, and chickens noisily respond to the chaos, Farmer Fred wakes up and steps outside. In an amusing twist, the mouse steps inside, delighted to be sampling the tasty spread that the rather gluttonous farmer has prepared. VERDICT Delightful illustrations accompany a charming tale that will make a positive addition to most collections.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
