This is a very cute children's fiction book about a mouse named Celeste who's looking for a home. Celeste lives in a plantation house and goes through a number of houses that keep getting taken away from her - under the floorboards, in a boot, in a shirt pocket, and even a dollhouse! Celeste's story is also intertwined with the story of John James Audubon as he seeks out birds from all over the country to draw. Celeste is befriended by Audubon's assistant Joseph Mason. With each move to a new home Celeste learns another lesson about friendship and the importance of a home of her own. The book is illustrated with pencil like drawings that illuminate some of the characters in the story.
