Upstairs Mouse, Downstairs Moleby Wong Herbert Yee
Synopses & Reviews
Yippee! It is snowing like mad! It is a winter wonderland! What better day for a Mouse and Mole to go sledding, whirl around on ice skates, and build snowmen together?
But Mole does not want to go outside. Too cold! Too windy! He prefers to stay as snug as a bug in a rug inside his nice, warm bed.
Mouse is lonely. Ice skating and sledding just arent as fun for one. Then she gets an idea…a Sno-Mole might do the trick! Mole wont be needing his hat or scarf or mittens…or will he?
While it is fun for best friends to share their adventures, sometimes even best friends want to do different things. But at the end of a cold winters day, it is always nice to know that your best friend will be there waiting for you, with warm mittens and all.

Mouse and Mole are neighbors.
Mouse lives inside an oak tree, and Mole lives in a hole underneath.
They are neighbors, but they are also friends.
Sometimes friends make mistakes—but they always try to help each other out. That is what Mouse and Mole do.
