"The writing is nicely mannered but very accessible, making the book not only a winner for reading aloud but also a delightful offering for children moving past beginning readers." -Booklist, starred review

"Christopher Mouse may be small, but he has big adventures . . . his conversational account of his life will delight young readers." -School Library Journal

"Benson's highly textured, hatching-dense drawings enhance the slightly period flavor . . . Christopher and his brethren are engagingly and authentically portrayed." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
