If you are like me, your mom or dad has a favorite nickname for you. In my case, as you'll see in this picture book, my mom calls me her 'little mouse'. Frankly, I'm not so sure that is an accurate way of describing me. In fact, I know it's not!

I'm actually not small like a little mouse but quite tall like a giraffe. Also, I am strong like a bull and as brave as a lion. Little mice just nibble their food but when I am hungry I chomp on my food like a hungry horse.

As you know, mice kind of squeak. Well, I can howl like a coyote and hoot like an owl. Mice don't fly but I can when I zoom high into the sky on my swing.

So, for these and a number of reasons, I don't think I should be compared to a mouse. Actually, that's not totally correct. There are times when I don't mind being 'Mommy's little mouse' and, when you read my book, you'll see when I don't mind that comparison.

There are some really cute illustrations of me and various animals that make my picture book fun to page through. I think you'll really enjoy it and maybe you can identify the various creatures and critters you'll find here.
