Four rounded sliding tabs let readers join in a gray mouse's search for his mother. Everywhere Teeny Weeny looks%E2%80%94the tree, the pirate ship, the flower%E2%80%94turns up friendly animals, but not Mommy. "That must be Mommy behind the wall!" shouts one page. "Oh no, it's Bear!" it continues, as a golden-furred, sweater-clad bear slides from behind a brick wall licking an ice-cream cone. The tabs do double duty on consecutive pages, multiplying the seek-and-find enjoyment, and the story ends with a picnic reunion between mother and mouse.
