Miss Mouse is a peculiar girl. She's not like the other girls in her village, who wander around the village in giggling groups, and gape at all the handsome boys. Miss Mouse prefers a quieter existence. She loves to read. When she has a free moment, she can often be found outdoors somewhere well-removed from the pesterings of her family and acquaintances; enjoying a good book. Miss Mouse often reads where Mr. Nightengale is known to alight for a rest on his travels. He too enjoys the quiet of the country, and the gentle, pleasant company of Miss Mouse. Sometimes, he'll sing softly to Miss Mouse while she reads.
