Quick review.

Review: 

Strange version of the blind men and the elephant but mice instead of men. Nice that the one who figures it out is also a blind mouse and not some sighted passerby.

Quick review.

Review: 

Strange, nearly wordless version of the fable. You kind of have to know the fable already to understand what's going on.

Quick review.

Review: 

Not very well written, but surprisingly not that bad of a story. There are overweight 14 year old girls, and perhaps their lives would improve if they lost weight.

Overweight 14-year-olds need to diet.

Odd book about a dog trying to get an apple pie, and all the sentences or sentence fragments start with the letters of the alphabet.
