Mina the mouse is very upset when her father brings home a pet "squirrel" that she is certain is a cat.

Publisher Marketing:
"Marvelous mouse-sized mischief for all ages." --Booklist (starred review)

From the creator of the acclaimed and beloved Pokko and the Drum comes an emotionally resonant, "richly imagined" (The Horn Book, starred review)​ picture book about trust, worry, and loyalty between a father and daughter.

Mina and her father live in a hollowed-out tree stump on the edge of a pond on the edge of a forest. Nothing ever bothers Mina, until one day, her father brings home a suspicious surprise from the woods.

Should Mina trust her father--or listen to her own instincts?
