Wilbur and Orville began packing the Flyer into a wooden crate. Wee's little heart skipped a beat. "They're getting ready to go to Kitty Hawk," he told his family. "If only I could go and watch them fly. What a story it would make."

Join one indomitable mouse as he
takes off on the ride of his life

Wee is a journalist who will stop at nothing to get his story. Wee is also . . . a mouse. And what better time and place for a mouse than a bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio, during the year 1903? Wee could think of no place he'd rather be. Except-just maybe-in the air!

Will Wee get his sky excursion, his big story for the Mouse News? With the Wright brothers around, Wee's sure to be going places. In this charming picture book, fact and (a little) fiction work together to tell a thrilling story about one courageous mouse.

It’s wonderful to be a mouse in 1903, thinks Wee, who lives with his wife and two mousekins in a bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio, where they publish Mouse News for the mouse neighborhood: Wee writes the stories, Mama runs the printing press, and the youngsters sell the papers.
