Though they had a clean cage and fresh water and food, Jimmy's mice wanted MORE!
Mice on Main tells the story of nine pet mice who find their perfect places on Main Street in Greenville, South Carolina.
Jimmy Ryan's white mice are not happy in their cage. They have everything they need, but they want more: "Freedom," "Adventure," "Sparkle."
Using a blend of words and illustrations, writer Linda Kelly and illustrator Zan Wells bring to life mice who have unique personalities and their own individual styles.
You'll understand why Maggie, the mom, resists the other mice as they seek their freedom. There are, after all, mouse traps and cats outside the cage. You'll ponder the problem with Jimmy as he tries to figure out how to give his mice freedom and safety, and you'll laugh when teenie tiny Millie finds her very own place in the world.
Mice on Main: The Shirts
While they were working on the text and illustrations for the book, Kelly and Wells decided they wanted t-shirts to complement the book and be fun for children and adults to wear. These t-shirts would be different from any t-shirts they had ever seen, and the colors would have to be bright and cheerful.
Wells designed the ultimate shirt. One large mouse fills the front, and nine small mice line up across the back. All the mice have have nicely shaped ears and fine slender tails. You'll know them when you see them in the stores.
