Maria and her friend Mouse Mouse live in parallel worlds under the same roof. Neither one can tell her parents about their friendship (Maria's family would buy a cat to drive away the mice; Mouse Mouse's family would move to a hole in the ground because of their fear of people). Both Maria and Mouse Mouse are having trouble finding their moms one day, and go on a parallel search all around the house. This book was named a 2014 Best Illustrated Book by The New York Times.
