There is something really cute about mice dressed up and acting like humans and this book by Andrews and her daughter Emma is no exception. From the "moused-up" song titles: "Muenster Makes the World Go Round," "Squeakin' in the Rain," and "If I Was a Rich Mouse," to the detailed descriptions of whisker twitches and scurrying, the book is charming and informative for little readers who don't know much about the life of theater people -- or mice.

In the paperback there are some fun extras including a theater vocabulary list, a newspaper review of the final show, a Playbill from Broadway Airs, and advice for "theater mice."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
