Missile Mouse

from Missile Mouse, page 93


It's hard to believe the world had room for one more anthropomorphic cartoon mouse, but Jake Parker's Missile Mouse proved we did.

This rascally rapscallion's got punch and bravado and comes packaged with everything budding fans need to build a lifelong obsession. If Scholastic markets this puppy right, they could turn this property into something that lasts and lasts and becomes a basic building block of childhood during the twentyteens.

Buy one now so you can say you knew it before it was cool.

Note: I received an advance review copy from Scholastic. So I'm probably totally biased by that. Also, I've played mafia with the artist, so there's that too. Also, I'm not French. All these things are working against me here. Except not being French. I don't see how that could impact my impartiality.
