I LOVED this book when I was little!! Fantasy book with the author inviting the reader in to help the mouse save the big red strawberry and then eat it. Wonderful illustrations and very cute for teaching sequencing. Read full review

While I liked this book, it doesn't really tell you much about what's going on in the area around the mouse, and the point of view of the storyteller is never revealed. I'm unsure where I would stand on purchasing this book, honestly. Read full review

About the author (2009)

Don Wood was was born and raised on a farm in the great Central Valley of California. His family raised peaches, sweet potatos, almonds, grapes, and oranges. By the time Wood was in the sixth grade, he had forty acres of potatos to take care of by himself. During the summer, he and his brothers worked twelve to sixteen hour shifts, seven days a week. They were paid wages and were expected to pay for their own clothes and entertainment, and eventually, college educations. Wood knew by the sixth grade that he wanted to be an artist. Wood attended the University of California at Santa Barbara and did graduate work in art at the California College of Arts and Crafts. He was illustrating magazines when his wife Audrey decided to try her hand at writing children's picture books. They collaborated together on Moonflute and Wood enjoyed it so much that he has been illustrating kids books ever since.
