An easy reader inspired by the viral "pizza rat" YouTube video. Life is a challenge for a city mouse. Dogs, cats, and people are daily dangers. But when the whiskered hero of this story uncovers one of the greatest treats New York City has to offer a forager—a discarded slice of pepperoni pizza—the danger is all worth it! Now it’s up to the tiny Pizza Mouse to get the slice safely home to his family . . . via the A train, of course! Guided Reading Level D.

A Junior Library Guild selection!
