A little mouse resides with his family in a leaky, old, leather boot that constantly needs repair. As winter approaches, the others are all for sealing themselves inside to shut out the cold. Robert has always yearned to play in the snow, so when he accidentally slips out of his window, he is delighted. Soon, however, he becomes lost and must be saved by a ‘big animal’ with red fur and blue eyes. He delivers the little mouse to his home, and when the snow melts, Robert’s family is mystified and delighted by the appearance of a brand-new boot right next to their old one. — School Library Journal
