    Title The Adventures of Mouse DeerAuthor Aaron ShepardIllustrator Kim GambleGenre Non European FolktaleThemes Wits vs powerOpening linesentence I’m uick and smart as I can be Brief Book Summary Mouse Deer is a trickster tale from Southeast Asia Throughout the book there are a few different stories where the Mouse Deer comes in contact with other animals or people Many or all of what it comes in contact with want to eat Mouse Deer so it has to be smart and witty enough to get itself out of these situations Professional RecommendationReview #1 A retelling of some of Southeast Asia's most popular folklore Simply narrated The Adventures of Mouse Deer is witty and steeped in the power of myth as well as high spirited determination A delightful introduction to an enduring legend Small Press Bookwatch Midwest Book Review May 2005Professional RecommendationReview #2 Mouse Deer's small stature leaves him vulnerable in the jungle but Crocodile Tiger and Farmer are no match for this uick witted fearless creature Give this book to children making their first forays into chapter books and visit the author's Web site to download readers theater scripts Daryl Grabarek School Library Journal Dec 1 2009Response to Two Professional Reviews These reviews give a general idea of what this book is about and what to expect when reading I think that these reviews left out one of the best parts of this book which is how well it is written and that the illustrations are beautiful The illustrations capture all of the colors you would expect to see when going on this adventure with Mouse Deer I think this book is a great pick for a read aloud Evaluation of Literary Elements Even though this book is predictable I think that children will love it since it has a plot that they can easily follow and make predictions with I also think that since the plot includes some suspense when first meeting each of the things Mouse Deer meets It also includes a song that Mouse Deer sings which can have the class participate when the time comes Consideration of Instructional Application I think that I would include this in my read aloud selection of books It includes a song in the book that the Mouse Deer sings so I think one of the best lessons to incorporate this book into is a singing lesson which I would get different books that include songs and read and sing through them with the children However this book also has a lesson in it for children to learn that wits can out do power in anything that they do

    The Adventures of Mouse Deer includes three stories showing Mouse Deer and his great adventures This book is suitable for Preschool Kindergarten and First Grade The vocabulary is not challenging and there are pictures throughout the book Mouse Deer is a brave and uick witted character who outsmarts everyone else in the stories The storyline would be very intriguing for younger children and keep them engaged throughout the entirety of the folktale

    Not my favorite tricksterThe one page intro was better than the stories Maybe I'm being overly sensitive but there was a lot of name calling in three very short tales I'd take Brer Rabbit any day These three stories were simple enough and of course doing voices kept my 18 month old involved but there's very little to take away from this except that tigers crocodiles and dogs are stupid? The artwork is amazing and provided lots for little fingers to point at

    In Ghana we had a different book about a mouse deer but this is what my library has The stories are about how gullible the other animals are than him doing anything clever The artwork is ok but I'm still searching for the one I remember with its vivid pictures
