Excerpt

othing but a trap," he declared. "And I'd hate to go to sleep inside it."

His views, however, did not trouble Dickie Deer Mouse in the least. The place suited him. And he was so happy in it that sometimes when the weather was bad and he wasn't whisking about in the trees, or scurrying around on the ground, he would stay inside his cozy home, with only his head sticking out through the doorway, while his big, bright, bulging, black eyes took in everything that happened in his dooryard.

This little book can be enjoyed by parents as much as their small children. The kids will enjoy the rambunctious adventures of Dickie the Deer Mouse and his pal Eldridge Elk. Parents will enjoy the hilarious double-entendres, biting political satire, and commentary on popular culture.

Dickie the Deer Mouse and Eldridge Elk have two arch enemies---Igor Eviloff and Natalia Passionoff; two Russian spies who report to their 'Leader with no Fear'.

Sound familiar? Dickie and Eldridge were the models for the 1960s cartoon show Rocky and Bulwinkle.
