The Millionare Mouse

Lily the mouse had just found out that her Aunt Lulu had died and left her 10 million, 5 hundred thousand, 9 hundred, and 53 dollars! Lily was now very famous, wealthy, and above all, very powerful. She was out buying cheese, Colby Jack, American, and Pepper Jack. When she got home, she told her messenger, the pigeon to summon all neighborhood dogs. The pigeon said to the dogs, Lily wants you. Uh-o, you're in trouble!! When they were all assembled around her they began to beg, "Please Lily, O powerful mouse, have mercy on us!" But all Lily said was, "Shhh" O.K., here's the deal, every dog that chases the alley cat will receive $100." The dogs replied in a chorus,"Alright!!", and were off! Within 30 seconds the cat that had once had Lily and her family on the dinner menu raced in and begged the mouse for help. O.K., I'll stop the dogs, but you will have to promise to never again try eat me or any other mouse in the world. And warn your kitty friends too." And from then on, thanks to Lily, dogs, cats, and mice lived peaceful together.


  1. You're my kind of "powerful" person! I like it!! Grammie

  2. Very creative and clever!! Your writing is great Caroline, keep it up! Big hugs, Chris

  3. I read this to Scout, Nittany, and Alley. They agreed it was a super idea, and they will follow your advice. Personally, I am hoping that we don't have any mice show up here at my house! It will put me in a spot! :):)
