One cold winter morning, a hunter is walking very fast through the woods with his dog. He drops his glove. A little mouse sees it and immediately scurries inside seeking warmth. Then a frog comes along and asks, "Any room for me?" The mouse accommodates him with pleasure. Then a hare, a fox, a wild boar, and a large bear join them in the fallen glove. Seeing them snuggled together in the glove, we wonder what will happen when the man returns.
Loek Koopmans is the writer and illustrator for this children's book for babies through pre-schoolers. This playful tale salutes the kindness, generosity, hospitality, and fearleslsness of the mouse who gives up his little paradise to strangers. We also like the ending where the message is: nothing lasts forever so don't get attached to anything.
