A book away from an episode of hoarders (fidgit77) | 257 comments I remembered reading this book (or books) when I was a kid. Little white mouse who had adventures. I would guess it was between 1975 and 1985 when the book was released. I saw it painted on an art horse and it’s the 2nd from the right in this photo. https://t.co/JVqxhtqQOz

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes

I see that's too new, but maybe an earlier book in the series has her dressed the same way?

Adele | 1206 comments That mouse on the horse is definitely Kevin Henkes' Lilly. Lilly first appears in Chester's Way which was published in 1988. Henkes has an earlier female mouse named Sheila Rae, but she is brown Sheila Rae, the Brave by Kevin Henkes (1987)
The first Henkes mouse book is A Weekend with Wendell by Kevin Henkes (1986)
