Read full description of the books The Mother's Day Mice:Cute if not exactly inspired. I expected more from Bunting and Brett but this is still a nice Mother's Day read. Three mice go off to find the best present they can find for mom. The littlest one is even willing to brave venturing up to the house with the scary cat just so he can pick mother some honeysuckle. But, in the end, he comes up with a better idea for her. Now, I did like that the siblings were cooperative and sharing in getting presents for mom--no one-upping of the other trying to get her the "best" gift. But, I was not so keen on the idea of the little ones braving all sorts of dangers just to bring mom some nice presents--and I don't think that's something moms would want their kids to do either!!!
This is also an interesting read for Brett fans as it is really not the style we are used to from her these days--but is still very charming and I actually almost prefer it to her more recent artwork.

Anne Evelyn Bunting, better known as Eve Bunting, is an author with more than 250 books. Her books are diverse in age groups, from picture books to chapter books, and topic, ranging from Thanksgiving to riots in Los Angeles. Eve Bunting has won several awards for her works.
Bunting went to school in Ireland and grew up with storytelling. In Ireland, “There used to be Shanachies… the shanachie was a storyteller who went from house to house telling his tales of ghosts and fairies, of old Irish heroes and battles still to be won. Maybe I’m a bit of a Shanchie myself, telling stories to anyone who will listen.” This storytelling began as an inspiration for Bunting and continues with her work.
In 1958, Bunting moved to the United States with her husband and three children. A few years later, Bunting enrolled in a community college writing course. She felt the desire to write about her heritage. Bunting has taught writing classes at UCLA. She now lives in Pasadena, California.
