Maurice DeMouse was sound asleep, snoring away in his soft bed of fresh leaves when he was suddenly awakened by a very loud noise.
Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow! It sounded like a very large pussy cat was in his mouse hole! When Maurice jumped up, he realized it was his new alarm clock! It didn’t buzz or play music; it MEOW’d. Today was a special day for Maurice; it was his very first day of school.
As he yawned, he wiped the sleep from his tiny mouse eyes, stretched his little mouse legs, shook his body, and wiggled his skinny little mouse tail - like he did every morning when he woke up.
“Wicky-Wacky-Whoa! I’m ready to go - to school!” said Maurice.
The little mouse gave himself a bath; he licked his paws and washed his face and his fur until it was all shiny. Then he brushed his itty-bitty little teeth, combed his whiskers, and cleaned his tail.
Before leaving for school, he chomped on a few ants for breakfast, and packed his lunch.
Poor little Maurice didn't get to ride on a yellow school bus; he had to crawl to school every morning, even in bad weather.
