...a Tibetan Terrier to play with?

My goodness.  Alfie had never met a mouse before, and suddenly there one was...in our living room, looking like a kids book illustration. A storybook mouse. Cute, unafraid.

I took him outside and put him in the grass:

Mouse

Alfie followed me, then positioned himself beside the mouse, ready to play.  He poked the mouse with a paw, then waited. Poked again gently, waited.  Watched.

Alfie with mouse

I came inside and went back to my computer because if this scenario ended badly, I didn't want to watch.

Eventually Alfie came in and lay down for a nap.   He revealed nothing.

My friend Robie Harris once wrote a picture book called GOODBYE MOUSIE.

I thought of that title when I went out, later, and saw that the mouse was gone.  Alfie is a picky eater and disdains almost everything except Purina Dog Chow or Cheddar cheese, so I don't think he ate our mouse.

I have decided that it strolled away and found its friends and lived happily ever after.

The End.

For the past several years, I have been reading The Giver with my 6th grade class (follows Number the Stars). Every year we search for news on a movie based on The Giver. Interesting, I had a discussion with one student who has read ahead. We were both hoping that the red of the apple would not be revealed when Jonas first sees it, but maybe an allusion to it with only his facial expression shown. The kids absolutely love it when they discover there is no color. I will be anxious to see how that is handled in the movie.
An added note, Miracle at Midnight is an excellent movie to compliment Number the Stars. The screenplay was obviously influenced by your book. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for enriching the lives of so many children!
