In a castle on a hill, in a great grand hall,
mice are getting ready for the Mousequerade Ball.
They dress in their finest. What a grand affair!
But when an unexpected guest arrives,
the mice get quite a scare.
Is the evening ruined? Should they run in fright?
Or will a gallant mouse stand up and save the splendid night?
Counting up to ten and back again, dancing all the while, this delightful story invites readers--and dancers--to the event of the season: the Mousequerade Ball!
