Big Mouse and Little Mouse are back, after The Very Noisy Night, to lend a hand in The Very Busy Day by Diana Hendry, illus. by Jane Chapman. ""I'm too busy to help,"" says Little Mouse. ""I'm dreaming up something."" The fellow finally redeems himself by revealing his creation. Imaginative illustrations feature a pint-size wheelbarrow made from clothespins and a spool. (Mar.)
