The tiny mouse featured in this picture book wishes she had a pet. But what are the options for a little creature so small? As she considers the possibilities it becomes clear Little Mouse will have to focus her search on various types of insects or small critters because they are little enough that she will be able to manage them.

As you page through this unique book you'll notice that the author uses a series of quirky dioramas to tell her story. Rudy also stresses all the things one will have to do to maintain a pet. You'll have to feed it, keep it comfy and clean up after it. Pets can be a lot of work!

But, if you select the right pet, you will have a good friend and 'together you'll have exciting times, quiet times, and silly times, too!'

If you are wondering what type of special pet Little Mouse finally decides upon, you'll have to read this very original picture book to find out. I think you'll be a bit surprised!
