There are two mouse families living in the basement of Johnny's house: Mr. Graymouse "and his lady mouse and his baby mouse" and Mr. Tailymouse and "his lady mouse and his baby mouse." One night, while Johnny is sleeping, the mouse families sneak up the stairs to see what they can see. In Johnny's playroom, they find a plane and a train and what can only be described as "automobiles for mice!"
One mouse family tries the truck, while the other tries the plane. As the truck only crashes and the plane only falls, they decide to try the car and the train. Disaster strikes.
In the morning, Johnny wakes, finds his playroom a mess, and rushes to pick up his toys. Mr. Graymouse runs from the wreckage.
Poor bloody mice. (Yes, this is my daughters' favorite picture.)
(Obsessive Nostalgia Disorder Monday will be back next week, as long as I can find the time to obsess over some childhood thing over the weekend. - Thanks!)
