The Lovereading4Kids comment

When little Mouse sees a great big red apple outside his front door he is determined to bring it in and eat it all up. But the apple is far too big to fit into Mouse’s tiny home! Mouse sets off to find a new home with enough space for a big apple in it. Peep through holes help readers follow Mouse as he looks at Mole’s hole, Rabbit’s home and even a cave with a very big Bear in it. None of them seem quite right. Luckily, the apple is getting smaller. Will it now fit into Mouse’s own home?

Synopsis

A New House for Mouse by Petr Horacek

Mouse is little and so is her house - but her apple is huge. She needs to find a home that is big enough for the both of them. But as she visits all sorts of other creatures to see if she can share their homes, her apple shrinks and shrinks - she's been nibbling it away! Peep through the holes and join Mouse in her search for a new home.
