The opening-page inscription (For Meggie and Thos, with love) and signatures have a clever little mouse design of their own. The book is a delightful contrast in praise of profligacy, with a fine surprise ending. The illustrator combines the titillating, funny, grotesque, and bizarre. This book does not follow closely on the patterns of TMCM. It is probably more along the pattern noted by the author: Beatrix Potter's mice-books.
