Synopsis

Hopping Mad by Linda Urban

Mouse was mad. Hopping mad. Hare thinks he looks ridiculous, and shows him how to hop properly. But when Mouse hops his way into a mucky puddle, he becomes even madder. His friends show him different ways to be mad, but Mouse can't seem to get it right. Then he finds his very own way, which may be the best of all!
