    1. Title:The Adventures of Mouse DeerAuthor: Aaron ShepardIllustrator: Kim GambleGenre: Non-European FolktaleTheme(s): Wits vs. powerOpening line/sentence: I’m quick and smart as I can be. Brief Book Summary: Mouse Deer is a trickster tale from Southeast Asia. Throughout the book there are a few different stories where the Mouse Deer comes in contact with other animals or people. Many or all of what it comes in contact with want to eat Mouse Deer so it has to be smart and witty enough to get itse [...]


    2. Mouse Deer is a trickster tale from Southeast Asia, I thought this book was very good, it teaches kids wit and power. This book teaches kids not to be afraid, Mouse Deer is the smallest animal in the forest but he is not scared of the biggest animals or any other animal, instead he sings a song while he wanders through the forest and tricks all of his enemies. It teaches kids that they need to be confident and not be scared of other people who may be bigger than them. I would do this as a read a [...]


    3. "The Adventures of Mouse Deer" includes three stories showing Mouse Deer and his great adventures. This book is suitable for Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade. The vocabulary is not challenging and there are pictures throughout the book. Mouse Deer is a brave and quick witted character who outsmarts everyone else in the stories. The storyline would be very intriguing for younger children and keep them engaged throughout the entirety of the folktale.


    4. Not my favorite tricksterThe one-page intro was better than the stories. Maybe I'm being overly sensitive, but there was a lot of name-calling in three very short tales. I'd take Brer Rabbit any day. These three stories were simple enough (and of course "doing voices" kept my 18 month old involved), but there's very little to take away from this (except that tigers, crocodiles, and dogs are "stupid"?). The artwork is amazing and provided lots for little fingers to point at.


    5. In Ghana we had a different book about a mouse deer but this is what my library has. The stories are more about how gullible the other animals are than him doing anything clever. The artwork is ok but I'm still searching for the one I remember, with its vivid pictures.



    6. Cerita anak yang banyak mengandung filosofi, dan moral education didalamnya. Sampai sekarangpun pasti masih lekat di ingatan kita semua, ya tho? :)
