What new surprise will Little Bitty Mousie find around the next corner?

While a family sleeps, Mousie scampers through the house one night. She sniffs around, wiggling her nose at all she sees from A through Z. After a bite of an apple, a taste of some butter, and a nibble on a carrot, Mousie's just begun to explore. The night is young, and there's still much more to discover

Jim Aylesworth's rhythmic language and Michael Hague's intricate illustrations will lead readers on a delightful midnight adventure with a charmingly curious little mouse.
