Miss Mouse wanted to call for help, but couldn’t find the phone. Then finally she found it where some peppers grew. She called her best friend Field Mouse. She asked him to
“Ask everyone to come!” she cried. “There are lots of vegetables!”
So everyone in Mouseville ran out to help Miss Mouse. “Where are you?” they cried helplessly.
“We cannot see your house!”
“My garden’s growing everywhere!” she shouted. “Please, start picking vegetables because I cannot get out!”
And so they started picking fruit and vegetables. They picked more vegetables than you can see in any shop.
