A 8-book series about a little mouse living with a single mother mouse, acting as all little persons do – in the first book, saying NO to everything – to broccoli, getting dressed, washing teeth, sleeping. Other parts talk about Christmas, winter, having guests, having a holiday, summer vacation and going on an island.
