Little Mouse, having grown up a bit since book 1, insists on doing everything on his own, from cleaning and baking to opening the door. It gets a little messy sometimes, but it doesn't matter! Little Mouse's friend Lyly comes over to play during the weekend. They build a little house and they play happily until they get into a quarrel over toys. Luckily, mum has a good solution.
