Mouse Tail Moon

Joanne Ryder / Author, Maggie Kneen / Illustrator Henry Holt &

Written from the perspective of a white-footed mouse, Joanne Ryder's Mouse Tail Moon, illus. by Maggie Kneen, presents 18 poems that follow the creature's adventures from dusk in ""Sunberry"" to dawn, when he wishes readers a ""day fair and warm"" in ""A Mousekin Blessing."" Kneen's watercolors make the mice appealing without anthropomorphizing them.
