In this story is telling about animals and mice. The book tells what animals do.

In a very simple rhyming story, a mouse tells a small girl in a pet store why mice make the best pets compared with all the other popular animals. The colorful pictures show that all the other pets do very well for themselves, even when the mouse tries to insult them. The girl grins as the puppies lick her face, but in the end the mouse fits just nicely in her pocket. With its perky voice and cuddly subject, this will appeal to first readers, as will the clear, colorful paperback design.
