My mom found an old book inΒ a second-hand shop, and she knew immediately that it was right up my alley. I’m sure you can see why. πŸ˜‰

The book contains a few little stories, and the first is about Mouse hunting for a new house, which reminded me a lot of the Nutmegs’ adventure.

Well, Mouse searches high and low, but everything he finds is too wet (a watering can), too dirty (a dust pan), or too dangerous (a nook with a cat lurking nearby).



But then, Mouse stumbles upon the perfect house.



And just when I thought things couldn’t get any cuter, Mouse decides that he’s lonely and needs a friend, so he embarks on another search, meeting a turtle (too slow), a frog (too jumpy), a fish (too wet), and so on–none of whom make the cut.

Of course, he eventually meets another cute little mouse, and they live in the house together. Look at their adorable little mouse butts!
