A construction crew of mice gets the job done, and some interactive elements allow readers to help out. "Put on those construction hats./ Roll that mountain nice and flat," writes Prince as a turn-wheel lets children spin the giant front tire of one mouse's vehicle (on the next page, the same wheel is used to spin "goop galore" in the mixer). As the pages turn, readers will undoubtedly grow curious about the round, flat, red object the mice are assembling—and they'll get a kick out of the answer (complete with pepperoni). Simultaneously available: Dive In! Ages 1–4. (Mar.)
