I had a picture book in the early 80s (though it might have been written earlier). I don't remember all the details of a plot, but I remember a mouse getting caught in a storm and getting a terrible cold. He's nursed to health by a little girl who tucks him in under a mitten. I seem to remember a scene where he's taking a bath in a fancy tea cup? I think he ends up living in the girl's dollhouse.

Anyone know this book?

A guess - Eleanora Mousie Catches a Cold (1987, 1991) by Ann Morris? I don't see a detailed description...

Eleanora Mousie learns how to take care of her cold and how to have fun while she rests and recovers.
