Friends forever! At least it seemed that way for three little mice, until Horace and Morris become part of an exclusive boy's club. Where does that leave poor Dolores? She tries to be a part of a girl's-only club, but she doesn't have fun and she misses the fellas. Soon, all three friends balk at these gender stereotypes that are keeping them apart! Charming characters and a splendid telling combine in this marvelous protest against conformity that children will embrace!

In Horace and Morris Join the Chorus (But What About Dolores?), Dolores is discouraged when she doesn't make the choir and her best friends do! Although she tries to find things to keep her busy, nothing is as much fun without her friends. Then Dolores figures out a way for her true talents to shine and becomes part of the performance in this fresh and fun story that emphasizes friendship and individuality.

    " This is a good book for children that discusses gender stereotypes, as well as inclusion and exclusion. The three friends were inseparable until the boys discover a club just for boys and Dolores is excluded. We have read two of the stories in this series and have really enjoyed them. "
