"A surefire story time selection."—School Library Journal
"Mortensen's verse text sets an upbeat rhythm and a jovial tone . . . a good counting book for classroom settings as well as individual reading."—Booklist
"It is an enchanting evening to remember (and a fine reminder that even a primary concept can get dressed up.)"—Kirkus Reviews
"The rhymes are sweet and the words are perfect for toddlers and Ms. Mortensen excels at capturing toddler attention and even keeping adults entertained (while reading again and again, I might add). Highly recommended for babies and toddlers."—The Children's Book Review
"In a castle on a hill,
in a great, grand hall,
tonight is the night
of the Mousequerade Ball."
