PreS-Gr 3–Line-drawn mouse and hound canoodle from rooftops to beaches, winter camp to trampoline, celebrating a togetherness that can transcend distance. The energetic pair dominates spare vignettes, which are often decorated in hearts. The text banks on adages like “Love is the place where you always belong.” and “Love will catch you when you fall.” Visually adorable, the book is an extended valentine, best appreciated by all romantics.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
