Bernard the dormouse is thrown into the teapot by the Mad Hatter and finds himself swimming in the Hudson River. Thus begins his adventures in Manhattan as he attempts to thwart the evil plan of the weasels to stop time. For a little mouse, he covers a lot of ground via assorted transportation options including the subway, a taxicab and a falcon. My two favorites are his attempt to cross Turtle Pond in Central Park via the backs of turtles and riding in the cuffs of humans. Quite entertaining and full of action. The weasels really creeped me out, but Bernard was a trooper! The illustrations in the paperback ARC I received were quite engaging and I anticipate that the finished artwork will be even more complementary to the narrative. Would make a fantastic classroom read aloud!

Reminiscent of "A Cricket in Times Square" and with fun allusions to "Alice in Wonderland." Bernard escapes from a tea party stuck in time and teams up with new friends and sometimes surprising allies to keep New York from suffering the same fate.

A Great Books for Great Kids pick. When a young girl crashes the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, the Dormouse finds himself on a whimsical adventure of his own. Can he stay awake to save the magical world of New York City from the dastardly plot of the Pork Pie Weasels? Grades 2-6.
