Many years ago a special friend gave THE MOUSE THAT JACK BUILT by Cyndy Szekeres to the boys. It is a slight book in size, perfect for small hands, and it follows the pattern of the Jack story and has a few plot variation that make it less repetitious. And it is better because of the snow creatures! As Jack, a rabbit, builds a snow mouse, two mice simultaneously build a snow rabbit! The ending is a an excellent surprise.
Miraculously, Cyndy has become a friend, and this summer she signed a copy of the book for the grandson of the person who gave it to us. He loves it, too.
