Once upon a
time, there lived
a teeny tiny
mouse in a
doll house, and
she had a
month to live.
She decided to
sneak out of
her doll house
and visit her
two long lost
aunts across the
wide Pacific Ocean.
She donned a
red checked cape
and packed her
lunch box with
four miniature sandwiches
all neatly wrapped
in willow leaves.
Then she began
a paw-written note
to bid farewell
and leave instructions
for the care
and feeding of
her six little
bonsai trees. With
excitement she trod
through the dark
taking care to
not wake up
her landlord, who
slept in the
walnut shell, beneath
a walnut tree.
SMACK! she collided
with a big
papaya. Her tail
curled reflexively around
the stem.
"Hey
I can use
my big knife
to carve a
walnut boat for
crossing the River
of Dreams when
my crushed leg
keeps me from
hopping," she said.
Though the papaya
now had jarred
the sandwich fillings
and pumpernickel slices
out of alignment,
she kept on
her path, glancing
occasionally behind herself
to make certain
her shadow still
belonged to her
(for, you see,
sometimes her shadow
had a mind
of its own.)
Her shadow waved
merrily, every time
the wicked sugarplum
fairy had indigestion.
Then it would
be upon her
like a crazed
mome rath outgrabing.
Nevertheless, she managed
to cross the
vast magic ocean
free of any
fettering responsibilities or
Catholic mouse guilt.
So she sailed
in her walnut
boat across the
Pacific, to the
wide world, a-waiting.
After many moons,
she finally reached
China, the mystical
land of the
Lilliputs and Brobdignags
, having traveled swiftly
over omnipotent mountains.
Wide rivers spanned
catching a lift

seagull with a
