It all starts so simply - a day like any other. A boy stays home alone when his mom goes to visit Aunt Rose. With a few cookies and a good spot to read, everything seems so perfect. When the Mouse shows up, hungry - talkative - and not to be ignored. What can the boy do but give the Mouse a cookie? So... what do you get when an energetic mouse and an obliging boy spend the afternoon together? Cookie crumbs, spilled milk, and a whole lot of outrageous physical comedy that will have you rolling in the aisles.
