Everyone has heard of house mice and field mice and church mice. But Flora is determined to become the first-ever school mouse. Being the first anything is hard, and Flora quickly discovers that being the first school mouse is no exception.  When she learns to read, no one - her parents in particular - can see the use in it.  She must convince them reading is tremendously important - especially after she finds a bag marked POISON.
