This book is mostly about a mouse and a motorcycle. There is a boy who has a motorcycle play toy and a mouse that finds it. The boy discovers the mouse and lets him roam his house.

I liked this book because it is funny. I loved the part where the mouse gets sucked up into the vacuum cleaner by the boy?s mom. The pictures are great because they are so detailed. My favorite characters would have to be the boy and the mouse. I can relate to this story because I have a pet mouse.

I recommend this story to people who like mice and motorcycles. People who appreciate good illustrations will want to pick this book up and start reading it right away!
