Before Maurice DeMouse awoke from his sleep, he was enjoying a dream about a plate filled with cheese cubes. He had no idea of what was about to happen next.

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!” said Maurice.

The little mouse stepped out of his cozy little mousehole, pointed his cute little nose up to the sky and sniffed the sweet morning air of spring.

“What a lovely day to go for a crawl,” thought Maurice.

As he strolled past the vegetable garden, he noticed that some of the fresh vegetables ready to be eaten. “I must remember to tell Bobby the Bunny about all those carrots” thought Maurice.

The big old shade tree where he napped in the afternoon was still, and the leaves weren’t waving in the breeze as they usually did.

Up in the tree, Maurice saw his friend Squeaky the Squirrel sunbathing on a branch.
