After a good night’s rest, Maurice DeMouse woke to the early morning sound of baby birds tweeting (and no, they weren’t on Twitter). He was soooo excited that spring had finally arrived.

After 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 first woke up.

"Wicky-Wacky-Whoa! I'm ready to go!" said Maurice.

As he peeked out from his mousehole Maurice saw the bright sun rising in the sky.

"Gee," thought Maurice, "It's been a long time since I saw a pretty sunrise." The winter months had been very long and gloomy.

The fresh grass was too tall for Maurice to see the sun on the horizon, so he climbed on top of a rock. As he stepped on top, the rock began to move!

Out popped a HEAD; then the rock grew LEGS!

"Jeepers-creepers!" squeaked Maurice.

"WAIT!" shouted the Four-Legged Rock. "It's okay; don't be frightened."

Maurice stood tall - and confused - as he whipped his skinny little mouse tail.

"Uh .. I didn't know that rocks could TALK," squeaked Maurice.
