Rave Reviews for The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail

"This clever yarn should delight fans of animal adventure stories." --Booklist, starred review "Readers will gleefully suspend disbelief as they trace Mouse Minor's exciting journey." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "With a plucky hero, exciting plot...Peck's latest is a gentle homage to old-school adventure tales." --School Library Journal, starred review "Peck's whimsical and tongue-in-cheek storytelling makes The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail a must for reading aloud." --The Deseret News "Children love the idea of tiny, hidden worlds--of pixie, fairy or animal societies that exist alongside our own. Richard Peck taps into this affection with The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail . . . a lively tale." --The Wall Street Journal "This change of pace from Peck's quintessentially American stories will delight readers with its British pageantry seen through the eyes of a feisty, insightful narrator." --Horn Book
"This mouse-sized identity quest sparkles."--Kirkus Reviews "A more-than-perfect book to share aloud with young readers." --Christian Science Monitor "Peck creates a pleasantly detailed, cozy Victorian mouse world. There's some of Stuart Little's appeal to Mouse Minor's exploits." --BCCB "Perfect for reading aloud to intermediate grade students or for recommending to readers who enjoy a mystery or a good adventure story. Recommend to fans of The Tale of Despereaux."--Library Media Connection
