Review: Nalah Goes to Mad Mouse City by Anne Sawyer-Aitch

Book Summary

The adventures of Nalah continue! One day Nalah finds herself bored and lonesome because all of her imaginary friends have gone away on vacation. But wait – not all. Mad Tooth, the little mouse who lives in her sock drawer, is still busy munching away on her knee-highs. When she finds out why Nalah is sad, she offers to take her down through the sock drawer into a mouse metropolis. The result is a tale of wild dancing, cousins and mice, taffy and a sock monster.


What child hasn’t had an imaginary friend? What a fun story about a young girl named Nalah. As a result of her friends leaving on a trip and her parents not wanting her around to help while planning a party, she decided she would create a cave where no one would find her. You never know who can be around. Feeling like someone was watching her, Mad Tooth Mouth, invites her to go to Mad House City where your young reader will experience a fun filled adventure that will make them has just as much fun. 

Upon first glance of the book, I was a bit uncertain about whether or not I was going to like it. The book doesn’t grasp you initially, mainly because we are used to a certain type of design when reading a children’s book. Once I finished reading, it was that uniqueness that played a role along with the fun story that made it such a great experience. The color s are vibrant and the way the design of the characters and pictures leap off the page that enable and engaging experience. Overall I thought the book was a fun read and would recommend.
