Amazon DescriptionHorace and Morris (but mostly Dolores) love cheese. To them, Swiss is bliss, Muenster is magnificent, and nothing’s better than cheddar. But everything changes when Dolores develops an allergy to her favorite food. Even worse, a food festival is coming to town, featuring—what else?— cheese! Fortunately, Dolores is one resourceful little mouse. And she comes up with a solution to her problem that is far from cheesy! Once again, the creators of the popular Horace, Morris, and Dolores books tackle a common childhood dilemma with verve and panache.
One Potato Review
No matter that allergy is the divider, not gender; once again it’s the slightly addled, always willing faces that Walrod attaches to these names which make them irresistible. Sure the cheese talk is always good for a laugh (“Roquefort and Beaufort and Blarney and blue, Romano, Parmagiano and Waterloo too”), and while it’s certainly gratifying in this latest installment to witness Horace and Morris (and look: there is Boris!) demurring in solidarity with their lactose intolerant comrade, you kind of hope she’ll find a pill before the next one.
