N.M. Bodecker's elegant illustrations never go out of style, as Sylvester the Mouse with the Musical Ear by Adelaide Hall, originally published in 1961, testifies. Here, an enlarged trim size showcases the tale of an uprooted country mouse who must find a new home when his grassy meadow with its ""lovely sounds"" is mowed down to make way for a highway. Luckily a music shop in the city provides an appealing alternative. ( Sept.)
