When Nelly reads a description of mice in a book, she is convinced that she is a mouse. After all, she is gray, has big ears, and a thin tail. But then she meets some other mice, and her confusion only grows. Why are they smaller than she is? And why can't she do the same things the other mice do? Only a trip to the zoo will set this mixed up animal tale straight ... or will it? This delightfully funny story about mistaken identities is sure to get giggles from young listeners.

Little Nelly elephant has just enough info to figure out she's a mouse (grey, big ears, skinny tail) and attempts to live the life of a mouse with some very kind and patient mice. When they find her some big zoo mice Little Nelly is happy to go live with them (better food) but also to keep her littlest friends too.
This book points to the need for critical assessment of our information sources... because when we get it wrong things can be really silly. Lots of fun!
