Mortimer the mouse lived in a hole in the wall.  The big people who lived in the house didn't notice him when he scurried about looking for things to eat.  It was good except Mortimer didn't like living in the small hole.  It was cold and not too comfortable.  He really wanted to live in a nice house.  And then it happened.  He noticed the family had put up a tree and decorated it with lights and ornaments.  And there on the table next to the tree, there was a small house.  Could this be his new home?
