Mousequerade Ball, A Counting Tale
by Lori Mortensen, illustrated by Betsy Lewin
With perfect rhyme woven into a complete story, this book teaches counting skills under a dashing cloak of fun! Award-winning Lori Mortensen and Betsy Lewin have another winner.
We follow the crowd to the Mousequerade Ball and meet the entire cast of tidy mice who clean the rooms, black-tied mice who strum their lutes, baker mice who prepare fluff puff crumbs and silly jesters that do amazing tricks. UNTIL…a cat arrives. Then we count down as splendid ladies scatter across the floor, buccaneers scramble out the door and mice dash into sacks and cracks. UNTIL…they learn the cat came to dance! A fun story set in an elegant castle, perfect for young princes and princesses.
