"How wonderful to have a story with a mouse in it that nowhere shows a female standing on a chair... Instead, the audacious Grill Pan Eddy convinces the family whose home he adopts that, since they can't get rid of him, they might as well accept that his presence is a blessing. And they do, mourning him long and loud when he finally dies. Eddy skis down the butter, sees off the cat. Can we be convinced that he is really as much a friend as an enemy? You bet, at least for the space of Jeanne Willis's ebullient story and Tony Ross's humorous illustrations."
