The Mouse in My Pocket

(CrossHouse Publishing, Dec. 3, 2013)
When Emily Krouse decides she needs a pet, her imagination runs wild with possibilities. Perhaps an elephant? A giraffe? Or maybe even a kangaroo! Emily’s mother isn’t so sure that these animals will be a good fit. In an unexpected twist, a surprise pet actually finds Emily—and it’s just the right size! Will Emily’s mother agree to let her keep this perfect, new pet? In this colorful tale, author and illustrator Susan Hopkins uses her artistic and storytelling abilities to bring life to Emily Krouse and her pets. The story is told in rhyme and teaches little ones the adjectives big, tall, wide, high, and tiny.
