Such a Little Mouse

Such a Little Mouse

by Alice Schertle Illustrated by Stephanie Yue

Explore the world of such a little mouse — from the bestselling author of LIttle Blue Truck!

"And way down deep in the hole
lives a mouse.

Such a little mouse,
with his smart gray coat,
with his ears pink as petals,
with three twitchety whiskers
on each side of his nose."

With Alice Schertle's sweet descriptive language and touching illustrations from Stephanie Yue, a little mouse interacts with the world around him. Every season of the year, "such a little mouse" pops out of his hole and goes out to explore the wider world.
