AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Spinifex Mouse is the heart-warming tale of Cheeky, a spinifexhopping mouse, who lives in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Cheeky is an adventurous little mouse that loves to leap high into the air and practice acrobatic tricks. Every morning, when his family have returned to their burrow to sleep after a night's foraging, Cheeky sneaks out again to look for more food and practice his flips. Each day, he ventures a little further from the burrow. One morning, when Cheeky is far from home, he shows off his clever tricks in front of a hungry snake and becomes swept up in a heart-stopping and very risky adventure.' (Source: Magabala Books)
