The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear

This enormously popular story of a little mouse trying desperately to keep his strawberry safe from an unseen, but hungry, bear is a favorite in our house.

The charming illustrations perfectly portray the little mouse’s emotions as the author informs him that all of his precautions are for naught, as “the big, hungry Bear can smell a red, ripe strawberry a mile away…”

The mouse and the author come up with a good and tasty solution in the end.
