    • Walter is a very lazy mouse in a large family. He is so slow and lazy that he never even sees his family because they get everything done before he gets there. One day, he comes home to find that his family has left and they forgot about him because he was so slow. He decides to search for them but soon gets lost in the forest. After searching alone in the dark he hears a noise and meets a nice group of frogs. They take him in and he is given his own island to live on. He becomes friends with th [...]



    • Walter and the Lazy mouse is an adorable classic tale for readers of all ages. It can teach your child or grandchild about the importance of friendship, cooperation, motivation and hard work. Would highly recommend this picture book.


    • A nice little story with charming illustrations, but the story line was forgettable and the use of repetition was tiresome. My 5 year old enjoyed it, but I found myself looking forward to the end.




    • It was a cute story to read to my daughter as a bedtime story. It is an interesting story of friendship. Walter is definitely a funny character and he is a great friend to the frogs and turtle.



    • This review also appears on my blog, Read-at-Home Mom.Walter is a very lazy mouse. He is always late to school, and spends so much time in bed that when his family moves away, they leave him behind. Alone and scared, Walter heads out into the world in search of his mother, father, and siblings. After getting lost in a dark forest, he makes friends with a turtle and becomes the sole inhabitant of his own island, which he names Mouse Island after himself. He also befriends three frogs, whom he nam [...]


    • Walter sleeps through his family moving. That's lazy for ya. He sets off to find them and transforms himself into a hard-working young lad, a giver not a taker, alert not asleepyou get the picture. A coming of age story, of a mouse.I'm curious why Flack includes the friends Walter encounters along the way. What metaphoric purpose do they serve? Three frogs don't need him but they are kind to him, and they listen to what he has to teach (including how to spell write r-i-t-e). They in fact don't n [...]


    • One of those titles I came across when browsing the Kindle store. I'm a sucker for an animal story (a guilty reading pleasure of mine), so I instantly purchased it. What a sweet story. Each character is fun and memorable and I wanted to be friends with all of them. However, I did feel kind of bad for Walter when his new frog friends didn't remember him when he was gone for a while, and also when he returned to his school and his family and no one seemed to miss him or notice he was gone all that [...]


    • Flack fans will want to stick with Ping, after this insubstantial story that follows form for simplistic children's literature of the 1930s and 40s. Walter's family disappears one day (never explained why) and in a panic he runs away from home and winds up on an island with three vapid and silly frogs with no long-term memory, and a turtle. He manages to make it after a multitude of mistakes and then is shown the way back to Mouse Village by the turtle. The art is perfect and delightful, but onl [...]


    • This is one of my favorite childhood books, and I am really looking forward to seeing the new illustrations in the latest version.Walter is a lazy little mouse. Being part of a mouse family, he has tons of siblings, but he's always behind - for meals, for school, for everything. Eventually, his parents sort of forget about him because they never see him and they move away without him(!). He sets out to find them and ends up being a teacher for three hilarious frogs who can't remember anything fr [...]


    • Walter is a lazy mouse. He is so lazy that he never gets up for school. He doesn't get up until everyone else has left. Finally his family forgets about him and move out, leaving him behind. Walter sets off to find them. He winds up on his own island and makes friends with some frogs. He tries to teach them math and reading, but since he never got up in time for school, he gets most of it wrong. He decides to go back to school and finds his family again. Walter finally learns to be independent a [...]


    • Walter is a very lazy mouse. He sleeps in and is always late to school. Each day he gets lazier and lazier, he gets up so late that his brothers and sisters are already gone at school, and his parents are busy doing other things-out of the house. Eventually, he pretty much never sees his family, and as a result, his family forgets all about him. One day he comes home and his family isn't there! Neither is all the furniture and all his clothes and things!So Walter sets out to find his family. Rea [...]


    • Walter sleeps late at home, he sleeps during school school. In fact he is so lazy that his parents and teachers don't even miss him when he is not there. His parents eventually move away and Walter is left on his own. He meets 3 frogs and a turtle and tries to make a life with them, but they can't remember him from one day to the next. Don't worry, a family reunion is on the horizon after Walter learns not to be so lazy.


    • This was my sister's favorite book when she was young - rereading it, I discovered why! A mouse is so lazy that his family forgets all about him and moves. He runs into the forest to find them, and gets lost. He soon befriends three frogs, who choose the names Lulu, Leander, and Percy. In trying to maintain the friendship, he has to give up his lazy habits. A fun story for K-3 children, with charming illustrations.


    • A timeless classic of Walter, the world's laziest mouse. When he sleeps through his family moving away he sets off to find them, thus in itself initiating the transition from lazy mouse to self-motivated hardworking mouse. A great adventure with a great moral that does not show its age beyond the names Walter suggests for the frogs. But you could always make up your own! :)Note: this was a GoodReads first-reads review


    • Cute story about a mouse who was so lazy he got separated from his family and learned some lessons along the way. This is a Nancy Pearl Book Crush Rediscovery book. I do believe it stands the test of time and young readers will be satisfied by it. I believe its more of a read aloud for 4-5 year olds than a stand alone.


    • I had forgotten how long this book is. It's much more an illustrated chapter book than a picture book. Some interesting words - I think I recall "dolefully" in there. Flack's original illustrations are wonderful. Might be better for a child to read himself as opposed to listening to a parent reading aloud.


    • My 7 year old Grandaughter and I are reading about "Mouse Mouse". - rather, she is reading and I'm delighting again in the story, the cadence, the illustrations and my grandaughter's delight.ad to my sister and brothers, and my daughter and my grandson when he was 6, and never have grown tired of Mouse Island.highly recommend!


    • I liked the way the author tells the story of how Walter overcomes his laziness. The narration is wonderful because as I read the book I often sensed that a child was reading the story aloud to other children. The illustrations are terrific too and depict story scenes well.


    • I read this with the little girls. We really enjoyed the simple story of poor lazy Walter. Our hearts went out to him from the guest chapter, though the consequences were self-made. We were happy to see him learn and improve through his experiences.


    • Cute children's story geared toward 4-8 year olds. Nicely illustrated too. Walter learns to do things for himself after he is abandoned by his family. He makes many friends with other animals along his journeys. Per FTC rules, I received this book free via .


    • I've had this book for years, and I recently re-read it in part to read to my baby and in part to enjoy it again. It's such a cute little story (and my husband made me pause in my reading aloud so he could use the restroom too. I'm not the only one who likes kids book still).


    • Wow! Walter is the laziest there is. This is a smart kids book that encourages children to be productive team players. I bet you'll love the toads as well.




    • Walter the Lazy Mouse by Marjorie Flack (Doubleday 1987) (Fiction – Children's). Walter the Lazy Mouse learns his lesson. My rating: 7/10, finished 1964.
