"Danger's lurking in the lettuce, / 'Tween the celery, stalkers get us! / Open moonlight is a menace. / Trust in shadows-disappear." A mouse named Jam thinks he is too clever to bother heeding the warnings of his elders. He goes looking for adventure-but is he too confident for his own good? Full-color illustrations.

Booklist, The Horn Book Guide, Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal*

Junior Library Guild


• The wordplay and rhymes make this book stand out.
• The poetry scans well and contains such skillfully composed lines as “In the middle of the nice, / The moon was on the rice / And the Mice were scoutaprowl. . . .”
• Wonderfully striking, atmospheric artwork.
• The story’s meaning will not be lost on younger children, despite an inventive and unique vocabulary.

Horn Book

In this witty text, complete with amusing invented words, elder mice warn the youngsters against venturing into the night: "If those who swoop or them that pounce / Glimpse just a whisk! an inch! an ounce! / Jaw-claws will trounce a wayward mouse." However, foolish Jam Boy ignores these words of wisdom. Moser's deep-hued, moonlit illustrations are suspenseful and humorous.
