School Library Journal - 06/01/2020 PreS-Gr 2—Maestro Mouse guides readers on this wild musical ride. Readers follow him through jungles, pods, trees, fields, and seas to explore the animal kingdom. As readers learn about each type of animal, Maestro also reveals something new, with a secret lesson or two hiding on every page. The armadillo, who has a shell to keep out the bad things, reminds readers that "it's okay to block out the bad things, but don't forget to open up and invite the good things in." Brown does not disappoint with his picture book debut. Rhyming poems accompanied by Batori's detailed, animated illustrations share each animal's story and helpful lesson. An added feature of this musical book can be found on the inside cover; Brown's original musical compositions accompany each page—one for each animal—and can be accessed through an interactive smartphone app. VERDICT A delightful musical debut sure to be a hit at story hours.—Elizabeth Blake, Fields Corner Lib., Dorchester, MA - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
