adorable little mouse first seen in her book Lunch has an enthusiastic
demeanor, bright red nose and a rabbit sized white tooth. Alphabet
Under Construction begins with a double page spread of the mouse airbrushing
bright red and orange on an A twice her size.
Fleming is known for her bright
colored illustrations which she creates with pulp painting, so put on your
sunglasses before reading aloud.
Horn Book compares the active little mouse to Martha Stewart. Maybe
Fleming should name her mouse Martha, because every letter she completes
is “a good thing”. Fleming’s Martha Mouse is industrious, multi-talented,
artistic and organized as we can see by the calendar on the last page.
