I always enjoy Leo Lionni books, but this one was bizarre. I assume the author was ON mushrooms when he wrote it, as it doesn't seem to have any underlying message and ends abruptly. This book can be used with the Four Theodore and the Talking Mushroom is an interesting tale about a little mouse named Theodore. Theodore is surrounded by friends that have great talent! The turtle can close up like a box in its shell.

Originally published in 1971, Theodore and the Talking Mushroom is a classic that has a surprise, thought-provoking ending, rather than a happy one. Told in simple terms and shown with likeable images, each of Theodore's friends talks about their talents: lizard can grow a new tail when he loses one; frog can swim underwater, and turtle can close like a box. But the only talent Theodore the mouse has is he is able to run. His friends laugh at him, for that is no talent.

Born in the Netherlands, he moved to Italy and lived there before moving to the United States in 1939, where he worked as an art director for several advertising agencies, and then for Fortune magazine. In 1962 his book Inch by Inch was awarded the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award.

When he discovers a mushroom that says Quirp, Theodore tells his friend. Theodore, a little mouse, lives with a lizard that can grow a new tail, a frog that can swim underwater, and a turtle that can close up like a box. But Theodore has no special talents of his own. When he discovers a mushroom that says Quirp, Theodore tells his friends that this is the only talking mushroom in the world, and that quirp means that he should be venerated above all animals. The word spreads, and Theodore is bestowed with a crown-until the truth comes out.

Didn't love the story

My 7 month old son loves this book. I'd say it's now his favorite. We read it to him everyday.

This book replaced a dull worn out copy with no book jacket.. So, the book is perfect for our collection.

This book is not appropriate for young children. The artwork is a strength but the story line and vocabulary are a disapointment and inappropriate for the age range that would be interested in the book. As an early intervention specialist, speech pathologist, parent and grandparent I am disgusted with the book, I am thankful I had the book shipped to me rather than directly to my grandaughter.
I will be returning the book and demanding a refund.

If you are looking for another Swimmy or Frederick, or even Alexander, this is NOT it. The usual cute torn-paper mouse illustrations are here, but this is a weird story, and not a very happy one, either. At first I had to wonder what kind of mushroom Leonni was on when he wrote this. The story is about a mouse who finds a mushroom that "talks," or so he thinks, at least at first. Anyway, the cat`s out of the bag, and everyone thinks Theodore must be great because he discovered a mushroom that speaks, moreover, he is the only one who can understand it. Thus begins his dilemma.
I suppose this tale is a good starting point for discussions about verifying ones facts, speaking before thinking, getting carried away, the dilemma of when to speak out the truth despite the terrible outcome and accepting the consequences of one`s actions. Maybe this is not so weird, after all: just not so light-hearted as the aforementioned stories. Theodore learns an important lesson, albeit a rueful one, and the book is not devoid of humour.

The moral of this story is to be honest in the face of horrible friends, which is completely inappropriate for children to read about. It's the most depressing storyline and ending I've ever read in a children's book and most adult books...

I recently picked up this book at the library. I learned my lesson to read books before I read them to my kids. This book was awful at best... The story follows a mouse who gets laughed at and ridiculed by his friends and at the end of the story he's told hes a liar, a fake, a charlatan, a scoundrel etc...he then runs away and never sees his friends again. Definitely not a good children's book by any means.
Don't buy this book. While the art is cute, the story line is not just pointless, but actually horrific. I didn't say anything to my husband about the book and when he read it to my daughter he looked up at me and said: "What IS this?" And when he finished, he said, laughingly, "THAT was a horrible book." Really. Anyone with an ounce of writing talent could have written something more compelling.
