Mrs. Marlowe's Mice - Asch

Ok, so while I was checking out Frank Asch's Moonbear books I came across this one in our library of his. What a story and how fun! A little longer than probably most 2 year olds could stand but maybe not. While there are lots of words the story is very descriptive and allows for a lot of play - cats meowing, mice squeaking. The pictures are detailed paintings - very colorful and well thought out. My husband, daughter and I all love this book and we may even purchase it - yes, it is that good! :)
