What happens when a mother mouse leaves her naughty kids all alone, and those mice bravely decide to catch a tiger? They make a trap, create a model mouse using cheese, and then wait for the tiger to come along. What happened next is something totally unexpected! Diane Sager writes and illustrates this short and wonderful kids' book titled Eeny, Meeny, Miney and Mo, published by Little Bird Books. Its colorful pictures are drawn in a very interesting style, while the simple, dramatic narration makes a great impact in young readers.

Eeny, Meeny, Miney are the older brothers in the mouse family, who are supposed to take care of their little brother, Mo. But Mo faces the tiger all alone and shows the courage that his brothers failed to exhibit. But why? That is the secret theme of the book. I can only tell you that you would enjoy the surprise!

I asked two kids to read this story and I felt so happy to see the thrill on their faces when the tiger appeared in the story. That unexpected twist in the tale makes this an enjoyable book for everyone.
Diane Sager's illustrations are very attractive. With simple shapes, all the characters, their personalities and emotions are shown clearly. My favorite bit is the part where Mo thinks his brothers are going to use him as the trap to catch the tiger. His surprise and disbelief are shown in a very effective manner. I am sure kids would love to copy this style in their own illustrations. Looking forward to more books from Diane Sager, with more adventures from the four mice brothers!
