Supermouse and the Volcano of Doom by H. N. Tahl, illustrated by Mark Chambers, Tiger Tales, 2022. 9781680102826
Format: Hardcover interactive picture book
What did you like about the book? Peter, a mouse, becomes a superhero when there is a need and sometimes the need is great. He saves a mouse tumbling from a ladder, he rescues a kite stuck up in a tree, he saves a mouse about to plunge into a manhole on its bike, and a baby mouse from a rolling stroller. But a new disaster will be his biggest yet: Mount Fondue is about to erupt and Peter needs help. When he attempts to confront the eruption on his own, he becomes engulfed in a sea of hot fondue! The tide turns when Inflato-Girl steps in along with Speed Eater and Daring Digger. The League of Remarkable Rodents saves the day! and the city. Brightly-illustrated two-page spreads, filled with peek-throughs and lift-the-flaps, enhance this story of daring-do.
