Roberto is excited about the paper mouse he made in school, until Amy asks, “Does it do anything?” Roberto isn’t sure, so he leaves the mouse on his window sill and goes to bed. Before long his apartment building is quiet, but Roberto can’t fall asleep. So he gets up to look out the window and sees Archie’s cat being chased by a big, snarling dog! Roberto doesn’t know what to do, but fate steps in and an unlikely hero comes to the cat’s rescue. “The artist’s skillful use of a combination of acrylic painting and collage has never been more effectively employed than in this quiet tale.” -The Horn Book

  1. A Different Kind of Hero… This book was amazing! The murals in skys showed emotions and feeling. The story tells kids that there can be a hero in the smallest of things…even a mouse!By: PAYAL AMIN AGE 13KELLER

  2. Wonderful We love Ezra Jack Keats in our house. We feel that he writes in a way that children think and love and understand. This book is no disappointment! The pictures are incredible…our kids love the way that each window shows what the different children are dreaming. They were mesmerized by it, and after reading it, created their own little house with windows they each drew in. Once again, Keats inspires and touches the little minds of children. Highly recommended!
