Millie the Mouth

by Freddi French

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
In this charming, award-winning homage to Dr Seuss, Sara and Paul are bored, but that soon changes when Sara gets some juice and finds a huge mouse sitting in the fridge. Her name is Millie, and when Sara is surprised that she can talk, she says, “Of course I talk! I’m a talking pro! I’m not an ordinary mouse, you know.” She then announces that she is hungry, and decides to make a chicken pot pie. “Get me a bowl and the right ingredients, and in no time at all, I’ll be feeding us.” And what goes into a chicken pot pie? Everything, apparently. “I’ll use whatever you have in the house. I’m a very, very unpredictable mouse.” So they collect everything they can find, and mix it all together, and then the adventure takes a strange twist, and Sara and Paul discover that Millie is even more talented than they thought she was. Kirkus Reviews says, “French’s charming tale has an exuberance and wit that should delight any child. The big, brassy, enthusiastic personality of Millie will jump off the page; some readers will take to Millie as a much beloved partner in crime when she urges the twins not to tell their mother about dinner since ‘she’ll spoil the fun.’ French’s simple but enchanting and expressive illustrations display the mischievous Millie in a variety of moods and poses. Lively and active, the drawings depict the entire story for children who can’t read, culminating in a humorous climax. “A delightful children’s tale with an engaging, larger-than-life lead character.” Millie the Mouth won a PTPA Award (parent tested, parent approved) in 2012. Visit MillietheMouth.com to view the audio book and download a song for free! Freddi French is a great admirer of Dr Seuss, and wrote Millie the Mouth to look and sound like The Cat in the Hat books. But Millie is very different from the Cat. Nothing Millie does is bad. She has fun with the kids instead of at their expense. When she leaves, you want her to come back. Millie genuinely wants the kids to enjoy themselves.

About the author
Freddi French is a great admirer of Dr Seuss. His son had all but memorized the Cat books by the age of two. The next three years were filled with the Lorax, the Grinch and Horton, but when his son turned five, Freddi wanted a new book to read to him. Specifically, he wanted a new Dr Seuss book, but that was impossible... unless he wrote it himself. And that is how Millie the Mouth was born: as a homage to Dr Seuss. Both the language and the pictures in Millie amply demonstrate where he found his inspiration. However, he wanted to do more than just imitate. Accordingly, Millie is very different from the Cat. Nothing Millie does is bad. She has fun with the kids instead of at their expense. When she leaves, you want her to come back. You aren’t afraid that she might do just that. This is never more evident than in the song that Freddi wrote for Millie. Millie genuinely wants the kids to enjoy themselves. And that is exactly what they do.
