Mr and Mrs Mouse have made a comfortable home in a clock. But problems begin when Mr Mouse eats too much cheese, and he is too fat to squeeze through the hole that leads to the outer world. This delightfully simple play is suitable for children of kindergarten age, and for pupils who are just beginning to learn English.
