Max the mouse and his friends like to play ball—except when the local bully Rico takes it from them and storms off to his burrow. The friends can’t believe it. All they can do now is sit around sulking about how mean he is. But when Rico’s mother makes him give the ball back, instead of staying angry, Max decides to invite him to come play with them. The rest of the animals think he’s crazy. Won’t Rico just steal the ball again? Maybe not if they give him a chance to join in the fun. This delightful book offers a reminder that sharing is the best way for everyone to have fun.

PreSchool-Grade 1–Max Mouse and friends, introduced in One for All, All for One (Minedition, 2005), are playing together when they become aware of the presence of Rico. He has a reputation of never being nice, so they ignore him. When their ball flies his way, Rico grabs it and runs home. The animal friends follow him and knock on the door, but no one answers. The next day, Rico's mother makes him return the ball. The others want to take it and go, but Max has another idea. He rolls it back inside the burrow and invites Rico to join them. Sure enough, he shows up and they all have a wonderful day together. The textured watercolor illustrations of these slightly cartoonish but totally endearing creatures fill the spreads and add warmth and child appeal to the message on sharing and kindness.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA
