Toe Shoe Mouse by Jan Carr - OPTIONAL

Carr Jan Toe Shoe Mouse, illustrated by Jennifer A. Bell. PICTURE BOOK. A Holiday House Book, 2014. $ 17. CONTENT G. 

After an exhausting escape through a stinky sewer, a little mouse tries to make a home for herself in a ballet theater.  Life there is not perfect, however, even as the mouse tries to cultivate the friendship of a prima ballerina.  The illustrations and the sweet attitude of the mouse are what really make this picture book.  Little girls who walk around on their tiptoes in tutus will probably love it.
