Nikki (nval) | 4 comments I have vivid remembrances of a children's book I read in the very early 90's, but I think it was released before then. It was possibly a flip book. I remembered it being a simply story for early years kids with detailed illustrations.

A mouse (wearing clothes) trying to help by doing chores around the house and in the garden, but everything they do they get wrong and make a mess. They get upset as they were only trying to help.

The mouse could have possibly been wearing blue dungarees but I'm not certain about that point

Nikki, I moved your request to the "Unsolved" because you're looking for a specific book.


Nikki (nval) | 4 comments Thanks Kris!

Thank you for your suggestion Sarah, although it is not a match sorry.

The illustrations are more "vintage" style looking.
I'm not sure on the dungarees part, I may have that wrong.

Sharni (sharnibear) | 61 comments The Adventures of Mary Mouse maybe? It's the first mouse in clothes book that came to mind (it's also part of a series)


Nikki (nval) | 4 comments It's not unfortunately but I was a big Enid fan and don't remember this one.
Thanks for contributing!
