"Once upon a can of spaghetti" begins this tale of a lovable little mouse named Meatball, who learns a big lesson about being brave when she's afraid. Meatball remembers her mother's "safety rules against all cats, misguided bats, and bully rats," yet when the mouse finds herself in a scary situation, her mom's instructions aren't so easy to follow. In the end, with the help of wise words from her father, Meatball proves herself to be a brave little mouse after all.
With charming illustrations of the mice family's tiny world, this tale from the pantry will make its way into the hearts of children who have shared the experience of being afraid.
