About the Book

Thought-provoking visual illusion and characters that are bright, bold, and original accompany a text that is pleasing to the ear, yet just right for the newest reader.

Mice skate on ice. As they skate, their blades leave lines that depict a cat. Magically, the cat appears, colorful, graphic, and three-dimensional. What happens next? Why, the cat and the mice skate together!

Mice on Ice is a Guided Reading Level C book.
