From Publishers Weekly:

In this rejuvenation of the classic aphorism "Good things come to those who wait," Mouse receives a just reward for outwaiting an apple that resists its inevitable fall. Cow, Hen, Goose and Goat join in the vigil, but they soon grow restless and turn to various unsuccessful schemes to shake down the apple. In the end it is Mouse against apple--and how sweet (and crunchy) the victory! Butler's ( Henny Penny ) barnyard bevy appears delightfully goofy, a cross between cardboard cutouts and cute ceramic icons (Hen and Mouse could pass for salt and pepper shakers). Although text and illustration may win no awards for originality, beginning readers will enjoy this work for its simplicity and upbeat presentation. Ages 3-up.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-A slight, simply told story about the virtue of patience. Mouse spies a shiny, perfect apple in a tree, and settles down to wait for it to fall. Along come Hen, Goose, Goat, and Cow, all of whom tire of sitting idly by; they try to knock it down, and then give up and leave. Ultimately, the lone small creature is rewarded with "the cruchiest, sweetest, most delicious apple Mouse ever tasted!" The colored-pencil illustrations and slightly goggle-eyed animals will appeal to children, as will the sight of Mouse sitting and smiling knowingly. Not an essential purchase, but a nice additional selection for story time.
