A hungry mouse is determined to find the perfect house for her oversize apple in this funny, vibrantly illustrated story with die-cut surprises.

One morning Mouse finds an enormous apple and decides that she really must take it inside. But her burrow is too small — so she sets out in search of a new, bigger house and an owner who's willing to share. Will she ever find a burrow to fit her and her apple, which she nibbles away as she goes? With bold shapes and colors and an ingenious die-cut design, Petr Horácek tells a humorous tale about burrows that get bigger, an apple that gets smaller, and a mouse who discovers there's no place like home.
