Sugar and Spice and Everything Mice
By Annie Silvestro (Author), Christee Curran-Bauer (Illustrator)
When a blustery, blizzardy snowstorm forces even winter-loving Lucy the mouse indoors, she decides to treat her friends to some home-baked sweets. Unfortunately, Lucy insists on doing everything herself—and it turns out that, for her, baking is MUCH harder than skating. Soon, the oven explodes . . . and so does Lucy’s temper. Luckily, her pals are happy to lend a paw once Lucy realizes that we all have different strengths, and that it’s okay to ask for help when you need it. With a little teamwork, sugar, and spice, Lucy and her BFFs just might get the delicious cheesecake they've been waiting for.
