Mouse wants a house, so helpful friends, including a mole, bird, spider, beaver, owl, and goat, set about building her the perfect home, each contributing according to his or her special talent. A second story, "Mouse Mystery," shows Mouse in her completed house. When she is convinced she hears a ghost, her pals once again act to resolve her problems. The resolution may be predictable, but it sets the right tone for a charming story of giving and sharing. The story, told in verse, is gently supported by soft-hued illustrations that become increasingly strong. They show a wide variety of emotions and actions that will allow younger children to "read" the story. Pair this with Welcome to Zanzibar Road, by Niki Daly (2006); Dog and Bear: Three to Get Ready, by Laura Vaccaro Seeger (2009); or Duck in the Truck, by Jez Alborough (2000).

Susan Pearson is a former publisher whose books for children include picture books, chapter books, mysteries, and collections of verse. She describes herself as "lucky" to be doing what she loves, "a detective" always in search of the right word or idea, and "a gardener" who likes to grow things both in the dirt and on the page (and where she often finds book-inspiring slugs). Slugs in Love and How to Teach a Slug to Read are among her recent books. Ms. Pearson shares her home with an "endlessly entertaining" cat named Archie.
Amanda Shepherd knew she would be an artist back in kindergarten and has since illustrated five children's books, and earned starred reviews. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she lives in Texas with her husband Garbo and Polly, their "hurricane baby cat."
