Excerpt from the tale:
This week’s favourite subject had been Mouse. Mouse was different. Mouse was an animal.
Das bevorzugte wöchentliche Gesprächsthema war Maus. Maus war anders. Maus war ein Tier.
Nobody really knew Mouse’s real name but it must be Mouse. He had such a mousy face; his legs looked like a mouse’s legs and he was so easily frightened.
Keiner kannte wirklich den richtigen Namen von Maus, aber es musste Mäuserich sein. Mäuserich hatte so ein Mausgesicht, die Beine sahen wie Mausbeine aus und Mäuserich war sehr einfach zu erschrecken.
