Smith's (the Bone series) crisply drafted style smoothly fuses graphic novel and picture book. Excited about Mama's invitation to go to the barn (“If we're good, Mama will let us swim in the cow's water!”), Little Mouse hurries to get ready to join his family. Every step of the getting dressed routine is closely examined (“Underpants are easy to put on...” says Little Mouse, wriggling into a tiny pair of briefs. “Just be sure to get your tail in the tail hole!”). He masters the technical problems of snaps and buttons, then discovers that in his excitement he's forgotten a vital fact: “mice don't wear clothes!” his mother reminds him. He's so shocked that his clothing bursts off him like fireworks. When he's unclothed, Little Mouse huddles like a furry creature, and when he's clothed, he stands on his own two feet—a useful visual metaphor for the oscillating feelings of independence younger children experience. The hero is an arresting blend of cute and tough, and his evident glee and determination will bolster the confidence of those who do have to wear clothing. Ages 4–up. (Sept.)
