Mr. Murry and Thumbkin

SummaryMr. Murry and Thumbkin by Karma Wilson teaches the value of friendship and a balance between work and play.  The two mice, who couldn’t be more different in their approaches to life, become fast friends and learn that there is value to the way they both live.  The illustrations are adorable as the mice even look so completely different from each other, their appearance accurately reflecting their personalies.

Pros: Great lessons on friendship and worry vs. laziness.  Superb illustrations.

Cons: I would like to have seen a more definitive change in the outlook of each of the mice as they learned from their life lessons, but I think that is inferred.

Age range: 3-9
