Review by Publisher Summary 1

Jasper is thrilled when he finds his dad's favorite childhood toy, Marcel Mouse, at his grandmother's place. He's so afraid to lose the family treasure that he keeps Marcel on a string around his neck. But sometimes Jasper has to take off the little plastic mouse, and that leads to all sorts of trouble. First, Marcel goes missing from under Jasper's pillow, then he gets sent to the principal's office and disappears again! Then one day, something TERRIBLE happens, and it seems Marcel might be lost forever ... Will Jasper ever see Marcel Mouse again?

Review by Publisher Summary 2

While he's at Nan's, Jasper John Dooley discovers his dad's beloved old Marcel Mouse toy. Orange and plastic with big ears and big feet, the toy was based on a character in a television show from when his dad was small. Jasper loves Marcel so much he slides him onto a long string and wears him around his neck! However, just like the TV show's theme song that Jasper's dad teaches him says --- “Marcel Mouse! Marcel Mouse! A mouse who's lots of fun! Marcel Mouse! Marcel Mouse! He's a tricky one!” --- hanging on to Marcel proves to be tricky, indeed. It's no big deal when Marcel goes missing for a short time in Jasper's bedroom, and then later in the principal's office at school. But then something truly and unimaginably terrible happens to Marcel. And Jasper may have lost him forever! This is the fifth title in the popular series by author Caroline Adderson about the irrepressible Jasper John Dooley. With his own quirky view of the world and those around him, Jasper is a one-of-a-kind character with huge kid appeal. His sometimes baffling but always courageous way of dealing with problems is unique, as is the way Jasper's parents are always available to help out and support him. For beginning independent readers, the endearing line drawings by Mike Shiell throughout help keep the text manageable. This would be a great title to use for discussing the subject of loss and the feelings surrounding it.
