Annotation

Uncle Dan brought his nephew Otis a very special gift: a mouse with super-long, expressive whiskers! Otis can't believe his eyes. He has wanted a pet mouse forever! But, how long can he keep Alice? Can he convince his cat Rocket and his two moms to keep the little mouse, so full of imagination and energy? The daily lives of many families--so different from each other--are often very much alike. Can Alice the mouse fit into Otis's family?
