Overview

MARY LIVED IN A BIG HOUSE with a very little mouse. The mouse lived in a little house inside of a very big house, with Mary. Even though Mary has been warned to stay away from mice—and Mouse has been warned to steer clear of people—the two can't help but peek at one another. Side by side, they grow up, go to college, get married, and have children of their own—Maria and MouseMouse. And then one day, Maria and MouseMouse do something surprising . . . something their parents never did. They actually come nose-to-nose and speak to one another!

I first read this book to my daughter when she was 4 years old -- we borrowed it from the public library. She loved it so much that we bought it for her 5th birthday. The book shows Mary, and the mouse, as they grow up (and as their families grow with them). The drawings of the home interiors are utterly charming -- especially for the mouse houses!
