Little Mouse's Big Valentine

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Dec 20, 1991 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages

This beguiling fable is both told and illustrated with disarming simplicity; Hurd's minimal lines are deftly expressive of his hero's subtle feelings, while his rich, watercolor tones make each page a delight. A splendid addition to the Valentine's Day shelf.
