About the Author
VALERI GORBACHEV has illustrated more than forty books for children, including his own "Big Little Elephant "and "Skunk's Spring Surprise "by Leslea Newman. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
." . . the author's message registers via the expressive faces of his animals (who wear clothes) and a minimal, accessible text."--"Kirkus Reviews
"While the story is familiar, Gorbachev's illustrations revive it with delightful details and humorous poses. Children who know the original tale will find this adaptation pleasing and those who do not will be content at its outcome. The animals' expressions are particularly amusing as they move from bewilderment to panic to relief. A refreshing addition to most collections."--"School Library Journal
"Gorbachev's whimsical watercolors capture an array of emotions on the animals' faces, and the final pages, in which Dog reappears with an oh-so-surprised look and Mouse displays an oops-whatever kind of attitude, give a nice spin to this delightful story about both being gullible and being afraid."--"Booklist
