PreS-Gr 1—Mouse wants to move into a new home but finds that a bear, a crocodile, and a tiger already live there and there is no room for another housemate. Mouse won't hear of it and insists there is room for all. Then there is a rumble from below, and a mole pops up and breaks through the floor. Suddenly there is more than enough room for all. The full-page illustrations are well-done and carry this story, giving the text movement.
VERDICT The story is perfect for sharing with a group and the pop-out ending is sure to please. A slight, silly selection for large collections.
