Horace and Morris and Dolores have always done everything together, so when her friends are chosen to sing in the chorus and she isn't, Dolores finds a way to become part of the performance.


Review by: School Library Journal - April 10, 2005
"Horace, Morris and especially Dolores are excited about trying out for the chorus. During tryouts, Horace sings the hight notes, Morris sings the low notes, and poor Dolores sings notes that no one has ever heard before. When Moustro Provolone announces the members of the chorus. Dolores tries to find other things to do while Horace and Morris are at chorus practice, but exploring and climbing trees isn't fun when she has to do it without her other mouse friends. Finally, Dolores decides to write Moustro Provolone a letter telling him how she feels. Her letter has such fantastic rhythm and rhyme that Moustro Provolone wants the chorus to perform it, and he also agrees to give Dolores lessons so that she can sing with the chorus. Jason Harris skillfully reads the book by James Howe, giving each character individual personality and singing style. Amy Walrod's illustrations are brought to life with appropriate background music and sound effects such as the needle on a record or the ticking of a metronome. Clear page turn signals are provided. In addition, Harris reads the various postings on Moustro Provolone's door, ensuring that listeners don't miss a thing. A delightful addition to any collection."
