Lexile measure:
A group of silly mice live happily in a cozy closet, until one day they spot a menacing orange glow through their keyhole. It must be . . . fire! What will they do? "Water! Water!" says Mrs. Votter. "Break down the door!" says Mrs. Orr. But is all the fuss really necessary? Bill Martin Jr's classic text gets a fresh update from Vladimir Radunsky. With the wry wit that fans have come to expect, Radunsky creates a wacky world of bumbling rodents behind the closet door. And for more fun, a keyhole cutout reveals a delightful surprise ending.
