“Eeek! A mouse! I cannot have a mouse in the house!” cries Nana Quimby, sending the family on a frantic adventure as they try to rid themselves of first the mouse, then its troublesome successors. From an owl to an elephant, the Quimby family pets devour shoes, steal lunch, quarrel with skunks, uproot trees, and soon convince Nana that there are worse things to have than a mouse in the house.

Read WHEN THE ELEPHANT WALKS first, then this one. They get an owl to get rid of the mouse, then a dog to get rid of the owl, an alligator to get rid of the dog, and after several more animals, they get a mouse to get rid of the elephant. Probably not for younger than 4 years old. Also read THE MOUSE BRIDE, but that would be for a little older still, maybe 2nd grade and up.
