I hope you are not afraid of the dark.  This book takes place on a scary night in the swamp.  A small group of mice are looking about but are staying together to keep safe.  All except Jam.  He doesn't listen to his brothers and wonders off.  Sometimes the words of the story are not familiar but I bet you can figure it out.

" 'Beware the dangershine of Moon, / Do not disturb the bugs of June!' / The elder mouncelors whispercroon / A tune that tells Jam what to fear..."
