Cheese Sneeze: Horace and Morris Say Cheese (Which Makes Dolores Sneeze) by James Howe
Horace and Boris but mostly Dolores loved to eat cheese.
They ate string cheese and Swiss cheese on Sunday. They ate Muenster with mustard on Monday. They ate Roquefort and Beaufort, and Blarney with bleu, Romano, Parmigiano and Waterloo, too.
They ate cheddar with their chowder and fetas with their fritters.
And there was no cheese they did not eat.
Until one day.....
James Howe's rodent trio are back in their third story, Horace and Morris Say Cheese (Which Makes Dolores Sneeze!) (Horace and Morris and Dolores) (Atheneum, 2009). It seems poor Dolores has broken out in a rash, no--in hives--after a marathon cheese tasting with her buddies. It seems impossible--for a mouse--but Dolores is undeniably allergic to her favorite food.
It's a disaster. It's a catastrophe. It's downright unfair, but undeniably true. Sneezy, wheezy, blotchy, and itchy, Dolores gets the diagnosis from Dr. Ricotta--she is truly allergic to all kinds of cheeses. Dolores can't imagine life without her favorite food. And to make things even worse, she sees a newly posted sign downtown:
COMING IN TWO WEEKS!
FIRST ANNUAL CHEESE FESTIVAL!
YUMMY FOOD! FUN FOR EVERYONE!
ALL THE CHEESE YOU CAN EAT!
Will Dolores fall off the wagon? Not if this resourceful gal and her loyal friends can figure out a way to make a No-Cheese Festival please Dolores. Best friends Horace and Morris pitch in to make sure she has the (cheese-less but sneeze-less) best time ever!
This third book in the series follows James Howe's and Amy Walrod's earlier hits Horace and Morris but Mostly Dolores, and Horace and Morris Join the Chorus (but what about Dolores?) and a return visit from this rodent trio will be well received by fans from Muenster to Stilton, from Camembert to County Cheddar.
