Chapter One

Once upon a pantry shelf hid two mice, Basil and Parsley, the MacKenzie twins. They loved to play games with their brothers and sister—Soccer, Stinky, and Meatball. Today it was Stinky's turn to entertain the twins because Meatball and Soccer were helping their mom carry groceries to the third shelf of the pantry, where they lived in a forgotten box of Christmas candy.

"Ready or not, here I come!" teased Stinky.

"Okay, Stinky, come find us!" Basil called out as he slid behind a can of black pepper.

"Yes, we're ready, Stinky," chimed in Parsley, who was curled up behind a jar of ginger.

The twins giggled with excitement.

Basil and Parsley waited, and waited, and waited, but Stinky didn't come.

"What's taking so long?" whispered Parsley.

"I dunno. Yoo-hoo, Stinky, come find us," called Basil. But there was no answer.

"Where do you think Stinky is, Basil?" Parsley asked with a quiver in her voice. She was worried about their brother.

"He's probably looking somewhere else. I'm sure he'll be here any minute," Basil answered.

"That's silly, Basil! Stinky knows where we are because we always hide in the same place."

Basil's ears perked up. "Oh, wait, I think I hear Stinky now. Listen."

Parsley heard something, too. It sounded like three knocks and a squeak.

"I think Stinky is in trouble, Parsley," Basil whispered.

"Really? Why?" Parsley asked, wide-eyed.

"Well, remember the day Daddy told us about emergency signals? He said if we ever get into trouble, we should tap three times over and over to let someone know where we are."

Basil and Parsley listened again.

Tap, tap, tap—squeak.

"What should we do, Basil?"

"I don't know," Basil admitted.

Tap, tap, tap—squeak.

Tap, tap, tap—squeak.

"Well," Parsley insisted, "we have to do something. Stinky needs us."
