Once upon, a time ago, there was a sweet brown mouse. She made her home within a zoo beneath the monkey house. As the zoo's resident storyteller, Mouse entertains her animal friends with tales from the outside world. African safaris, Alaskan sleigh rides, farmyard escapades and balmy beach tales. Even better, Mouse draws pictures to go with each story! Until one day Mouse's stories fall silent, and the animals must find a way to help fill her story drum. But what's a story drum you ask? Join Mouse in book one of the Monkey-House Mouse series to find out! And just maybe, learn how to fill your story drum too!
