The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Pip the mouse sees what he thinks is a flying mouse he wants to fly when he grows up and when he sees what he thinks is a digging mouse he wants to dig when he grows up Pip. A wonderfully enthusiastic story for every toddler and young child as they decide what they want to do when they grow up. Follow Pip as he has a go at flying and digging!

Storytime: Batmouse by Steve Smallman
When Pip the mouse sees a bat flying over his home, he has a big idea - when he grows up, he's going to be a BAT! Pip makes himself some cardboard wings, and prepares for take-off. But flying is harder than it looks. Sleeping upside down isn't easy either, and what on earth do bats eat? It's not long before Pip makes friends with a real bat...and decides he'd rather be a mouse after all! But he still really, really wants to fly. Pip's new friend comes to the rescue and flies him all the way home. All is well until Pip has another big idea. When he grows up, he's going to be a mole!
