Reviews

Praise for Harry Kitten and Tucker Mouse

“From the wryly humorous opening, in which the infant Tucker Mouse chooses his name, to the satisfying warmth of Tucker and Harry's defense of their drainpipe home in Times Square, the characters...are as vibrant and joyful as ever...Wonderfully expressive black-and-white illustrations.” —Publishers Weekly

“A splendid prequel to The Cricket in Times Square.” —The Horn Book
