About the book: Mouse and Bear live together in a little dark house in the deep dark woods and Mouse yearns to visit the moon. But first he must study and invent his Marvellous Moon Map and he can do it all by himself. As he journeys alone he discovers things are not quite as he had thought and being scared comes easily to a mouse. Fortunately he has a friend in Bear who has secretly been following and watching out for his little friend. It turns out that when friends have each other anything is possible and maps really are marvellous.
