A BRAND-NEW DAY WITH MOUSE AND MOLE by Wo Yee (Houghton Mifflin, 2008)

brand new dayThird in the series, this is already in some library collections. Mole’s day is off to a bad start when he discovers all of his clothes have moth holes.  His friend Mouse takes him shopping where he finds pants and a new shirt. They then go fishing, only to end up in the water when the line gets caught on an old tire.  They have so much fun playing in the pond that  Mole rigs up a tire swing for Mouse and  Mouse sews patches from her old clothes to cover the holes in Mole’s old clothes. Words and sentences are a little complex.  Would beginning readers recognize “pendulum”, “Abracadabra”, “cashier” or even know what “groovy” means? Still, the four simple stories reflect the warm friendship between Mouse and Mole.  Where easy readers are needed, this is a worthwhile addition.
