    1. Marie Letourneau has crafted a delightful picture about seven rodentine brothers who run a bistro with the best cheese soup in all of Paris. But can they prove it when a food critic shows up while the mouse father is still at the market? An overlooked member of the family saves the day!Here’s a book peppered with French that will delight Francophones and Anglophones alike, whether you are a jeune fille ou garcon or personne âgée or any age in between.In the interest of full disclosure, I rec [...]

    2. What a wonderful, wonderful story! In The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Frère, its beautiful illustrations make the book. Set in a petit bistro in France, it is the story of a restaurant run by a family of mice. Each of the mice is unique in its own character and the illustrations depicted are both elegant and witty. It is satisfying to read a children's story book in which family members come together bringing their own individual strengths to the family as a whole to solve problems in times of cri [...]

    3. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received.I knew from the cover that I was going to like this book, but I couldn’t imagine just how impressed with this book I would be. The artwork is very cute and made me smile just looking at it. I love the pronunciation page and that it teaches some French words to the reader in such a fun way. The characters are so much fun, but I especially like the hero of th [...]

    4. Couldn't ask for a better subject! Mice and cooking. A family that has a restaurant wants to make the best cheese soup, each having their own part. VERY cute story, with French thrown in the mix, lots of fun to read outloud over and over. The pictures were very delightful and excellent. Doesn't downplay to kids, but makes it fun to learn french and a good story of working together to achieve a shared goal! received ebook for free to review by publisher

    5. One of my absolute favorite picture books -- from one of my absolute favorite publishers (Tanglewood Press!)

    6. OK confession timewhen I first joined *Netgalley I was request happy. I mean I'd request anything and everything. Fast forward to the presentwell now I know the consequences of my actions because I had a 3% feedback rating. But over the last few months I've brought it up to over 35% and am working on raising it higher. This book is one of the few still on there that have not been archived or deleted. So finally after over three years of not reading or reviewing it I finally got around to reading [...]

    8. I was watching an Ace of Cakes episode oh about a year ago, and for a birthday cake they were doing Petite Michelle from this book, stirring a giant pot of soup from the top of a ladder. They showed the book - this book - and I just had to get hold of it. The illustrations are just wonderful, and the story is a classically simple but enjoyable children's story.Le Bistrot des Sept Frères means The Bisto of the Seven Brothers, and it is the hippest restaurant in Paris, particularly famous for its [...]

    9. I loved this book! I can’t wait to share this book with my classes. The illustrations were fantastic and the story was fun. It centers upon Chef Marcel and his famous recipe. This famous recipe is for cheese soup and it is time again for the yearly contest to see if his recipe can hold its place as #1 in France. Oh course, Chef Marcel is a mouse and his family is the only one who knows the secret recipe so they all must work together to win the contest. The judge is coming is one hour and the [...]

    10. The Mice of Bistrot des 7 frères is a wonderful story that reminds me of Ratatouille. Please note that “Ratatouille” in French is pronounced “rah-tah-too-yah”, and not “rah-tah-too-yee” (pet peeve, I’m sorry). It’s a short little story that is both amusing and educational. The author included a list of the French words she used with the English translation and a pronunciation guide.I really liked that Petite Michelle saved the day and that her name was added to the Bistrot’s n [...]

    11. A last minute telegram from "The Committee for the Best Soup in All of France" turns Le Bistrot des Sept Freres upside down! The Bistro is the hippest and yummiest place for mouse cuisine in all of Paris.The Bistro is owned by Chef Marcel, who employs his seven sons to help run the place. But wait! He has a young daughter who plays a small yet important part in the operation as well. The telegram causes a huge commotion when Chef Marcel realizes he is out of the secret ingredient that makes his [...]

    12. Frenzy arises when Chef Marcel, of Le Bistrot de Sept Freres, has only one hour to prepare his award winning cheese soup to be judged by the Committee for the Best cheese soup in All of France. But Chef Marcel is out of his secret ingredient! Chef Marcel quickly leaves to get his secret ingredient but doesn't return in time for the judge, leaving his 7 brothers to create their own secret ingredient to add. Will it work??The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Freres is a fun and adorable book. I love books [...]

    13. This book is simply adorable! The illustrations are original and do not appear to be mas produced as with so many other children's titles. I love it when a parent can enjoy what they are reading with their children and this book is just too cute not to love. I was impressed with the story as well. There is a wonderful message for young people included in this story--teaching them that just because things do not go as planned, team work can make everything turn out better than expected. Easy enou [...]

    14. Reminiscent of "Ratatouille", here is a restaurant run by mice (dad, his seven sons, and one youngest daughter) who strive each year to win the "best cheese soup" award. When they run out of their special ingredient just before the judge arrives, dad runs to the store while the seven brothers panic and wreck havoc in the kitchen. Enter calm-headed and quiet Michelle to save the day! (Then, to add a bit of feminism, they change the name of the restaurant to the 7 brothers and 1 sister). The lovel [...]

    15. my thoughts - This is a cute little book about a Mouse family that owns and runs a Bistro in France. There is a best cheese soup competition taking place and the father realizes he doesn’t have the right ingredients. He leaves it up to his children to prepare the soup and the youngest one saves the day and soup.I enjoyed this book for a few reasons. First, I like mice, rats, little critters. Second, it helps to introduce young children to the French language. All and all, it is a nice book a [...]

    16. I loved this book. The illustrations were fabulous and made you feel like you were sitting in a French Bistrot listening to accordian music, or maybe they just made you wish you were. Anyway favorite character is Petite Michelle. She is carefree and oblivious to the chaos going on in the bistrot and makes an important discovery and addition for the bistrot in the end. Petite Michelle is adorable with her little dancing, carefree attitude.There is also a Mice website that the book gives reference [...]

    17. Lovely picture book with wonderful illustrations. Chef Marcel has the best soup in France, but he is out of the secret ingredient! Will his sons be able to make the soup without him, or will he lose the prestige of having the best cheese soup in France? Love the splattering of French words and the illustrations were fabulous. Would recommend this for any elementary reader, but especially those with an interest in cooking or France. -------------------------I received a copy of this book from Net [...]

    18. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes I'll just admit it. I had seen this little book so many times on Netgalley and I thought the cover was really cute. Besides, thinking mice and cooking, I couldn't help but think of Ratatouille.And while the inside was also nice, it can best be read with (very) small children. They will probably enjoy the story a lot with all the food that flies around all the time. The drawings are nice and there is also an opportunity to learn some French.Thanks to t [...]

    19. I was sent a copy of the book for review through Net Galley, as always, all opinions are my own.Just before my trip to France last month I requested this book so I could share it with my son. He’s only 2, but I still wanted to share with him a little bit about where we would be while he was off to stay with grandma. I don’t speak French so I did find the French words a little difficult, but the glossary helped quite a bit with my pronunciation. We thought this was a wonderful book and I have [...]

    20. Borrowed this book from NetGalley for an honest review.This is an adorable little book. It's about a Chef who runs a bistro with his seven sons and one daughter. Things go a little chaotic when a judge plans to visit the restaurant to judge the bistro's award winning cheese soup.The artwork is bright and color and perfectly compliment the story.

    21. Delightful picture book for young children. The story is set in Papa Mouse's restaurant (The Bistro of Seven Brothers). A top food critic visits the cafe one day to test the soup but Papa Mouse can't get back from the market in time with his secret ingredient! Who will save the day? A real page-turner for the little ones, and it includes a handy link to a recipe for the soup 😀

    22. The Mice of Bistrot des Sept FreresWritten and Illustrated by: Marie LeTourneauI received an e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.Such a charming book - I cannot recommend it highly enough!Plot:The story is set in the Bistrot des Sept Freres, a mouse Parisian cafe which is famous for its award winning cheese soup. It is run by Chef Marcel and his seven sons (of the cafe name). Each day they recite the ingredients in the soup and finish up by saying, " and the secret ingredient." [...]

    23. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review.+++CONTAINS CHEESY SPOLERS+++An ARC was received from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, which is entirely my opinion. This is a charmingly illustrated story incorporating the use of French into the storytelling—there is even a page of French vocabulary at the beginning. It is not overwhelming, and adds fun to the telling rather than detracting from it—what child wouldn't like to a [...]

    24. The mice of Bistrot des Sept Freres published by Tanglewood Press written and illustrated by Marie LeTourneau with Danielle Reed Baty, is a beautiful children's story. I thank Netgalley for it.Pictures researched, with a special aristocratic touch to my point of view.The story is this one: Once upon a time there was a place (Paris) populated only by mices. They were like humans so, our society, plenty of shops, stores etc. One of these ones was a wonderful bistrot: The Bistrot des Sept Frère Ch [...]

    25. The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Freres is a charming and delightful picture book with the added bonus of teaching basic French vocabulary, focusing on restaurant related terms. The actual story of the Bistro of Seven Brothers is prefaced with a pronunciation guide that is very user friendly, as tested by my 11 year old niece. She was able to decipher all of the words, though some of the guide did not lead to the French pronunciation that I learned in 1980’s high school French.What follows is the [...]

    26. >>Original post: thereadersbookblogI have a love of all things French, so when I had the chance to read about a family of mice who run a French Bistro, I didn't have to think twice.

Among bright, full-page illustrations, the story of a family of mice unravels, describing the role of each mouse. Chef Marcel is renowned for his Award-Winning cheese soup, [...]

    27. The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Frère is a cute book showing that the female members of a family have just as much to offer as the males. At the Bistrot des Sept Frère Chef Marcel and his 7 sons and 1 daughter all have their jobs to do. They all have their own personalities and interests and it seems to work well.The Bistrot des Sept Frère has won the award for the best Cheese Soup in France for many years.

    29. Now I don't often read children's picture books but this one caught my eye. What can I say I like mice! I thought that this was a very cute read and I can't get over the illustrations! The illustrator did a fantasic job in doing this book. The artwork is absolutely amazing, I loved the use of colours and I love how it was a little whimsy it reminded me of hw france looked in the Disney movie The Aristocats. The main reason I don't read kiddie books is because I don't have kids (yet) and even tho [...]
