Where is that sneaky little mouse? Come play hide-and-seek with him in this charming picture book.
"'I will scrub that mouse out of my house.' And scrub she did. (But she did not see the mouse, because it was hiding in . . . the sugar bowl.)"
Grandma Twilly is in a tizzy. It's past spring cleaning time and she still hasn't tidied up her house. All she wants to do is sit in her rocking chair and squeak back and forth. But when Grandma Twilly stops rocking, the squeak does not stop."There's a mouse in my house! There's a mouse in my house! And one thing I won't have is a mouse in my house!"
With these words, Grandma Twilly leaps out of her rocker and starts cleaning her house in order to find that pesky (but friendly) little mouse. Young children will love this happy hunt -- and unlike Grandma Twilly, they may spot the mouse in all kinds of surprising nooks and crannies.

Rose-Marie Provencher has had stories published in many children's magazines. A former firetower keeper for the State of New Hampshire Fire Service, she lives in Chesterfield, New Hampshire. This is her first children's book.
Bernadette Pons is an internationally known artist whose work has been exhibited at the Bologna Book Fair. She lives in Paris, France, with her husband and their two daughters. Bernadette makes her American debut with Mouse Cleaning.
Grandma Twilly, a bespectacled woodchuck-like creature, can't rouse herself from her chair when it's time for spring cleaning. "All I want to do is sit and rock," she says, trying to ignore the dust and clutter. Finally galvanized by the arrival of a mouse ("There's a mouse in my house! There's a mouse in my house! And one thing I won't have is a mouse in my house!"), she leaps into action. In successive bouts she attempts to sweep, scrub, tidy and dust the critter out. Each day the elusive mouse finds a new hiding spot, however, which Provencher highlights with a repetitive refrain ("Again, she did not see the mouse, because it was hiding in... the cracker box") that sets the stage for a rollicking read-aloud. A surprise ending finds Grandma Twilly so delighted with her now-spotless surroundings that she sets out a feast for her furry intruder. The mouse has the final word well, wink as the book ends with it hiding once again, this time in Grandma Twilly's apron pocket. First-time author Provencher's tale unfolds with generous helpings of bounce and verve, and is well served by French artist Pons's cheery watercolors, played out in a sunny palette splashed with accents of pink. Grandma Twilly and her tiny nemesis are a kick, the one a round bundle of righteous housekeeping indignation, the other clearly enjoying the game of hide-and-squeak. Ages 4-7.
