The Tall Man and the Small Mouse

The Tall Man and the Small Mouse by Mara Bergman is a sweet salute to friendship. The tall man and the small mouse share a house but never see each other. They each keep busy doing the things they do the best base on the distinct advantages of their sizes. One day after a failed effort to fix the town clock the tall man discovers the mouse. After the initial shock, he realizes this could be the answer to his problem. By the end of the book whatever needs doing, they do together. Charming color wash illustrations give the book an old fashioned feel.
