Thelonious the mouse has got so much rhythm in him he can't help letting it out. To his family's horror, he won't stop scatting and shimmying around the house, teasing deadly Fat Cat instead of collecting crumbs like the rest of them. But just as Thelonious's games become too dangerous, he find a most unexpected musical partner in this jaunty picture book with art and text that truly sing!

Review: Thelonious Mouse

User Review  - Karen - Goodreads

This is rather a cute story, and I am a sucker for musical stories, but it was just way too loooooooooong. I understand buildup, but the story was so long that the impact of the ending was lost. Read full review

Review: Thelonious Mouse

User Review  - Tam - Goodreads

I'm giving this a 3-star rating because my child loved it but I didn't. He thought Thelonious Mouse was so funny and he loved the little things he sang but as a parent, I thought the "rhymes" were awkward. Read full review
