One cold winter morning, a hunter is walking through the woods with his dog. He drops his glove and a little mouse sees it and immediately scurries inside seeking warmth. Then a frog comes along and asks, “Any room for me?” The mouse invites him in with pleasure. Then a hare, a fox, a wild boar, and a large bear join them in the fallen glove. But what will happen when the hunter realizes his mitten is missing and returns?
Loek Koopmans is the writer and illustrator of ”Any Room For Me?” a book for babies and pre-schoolers. This playful tale salutes the kindness, generosity, hospitality, and fearleslsness of the mouse who gives up his little paradise to strangers.
