Such a Little Mouse, is a charming 2015 picture book written by Alice Schertle, the award-winning author of Little Blue Truck, and illustrated by Stephanie Yue. This delightful tale shows an adventurous and curious mouse popping out of his hole and going out into the wide world where he watches wildlife and collects food throughout the spring, summer, and fall before snuggling up under a little moss blanket with good book of mouse tales for the winter.
