When Iris Espinosa goes to the cinema, she doesn't expect to meet a small mouse. Meanwhile, the little mouse doesn't expect that her short nap in Iris' sweater will result in her getting carried far away from her home when the movie is over! Iris is delighted by the mouse's daring, which reminds her of the actor Douglas Fairbanks. And so begin the adventures of a sweet, plucky mouse named Douglas, who must overcome obstacles aplenty, from hungry cats to broom-wielding humans, as she journeys across the tall rooftops of Bloomville to return to her movie-theater home!

Full of high-stakes chases, clever escapes, and valiant rescues, Randy Cecil's four-act story — a companion to his previous book, Lucy — is a cinematic and meticulously crafted celebration of courage and friendship.

"Similar to its beguiling predecessor, this adventure comes together in four acts full of quiet cliffhangers and thrilling mouse heroics. Cecil’s playful language and shifting third-person narration create contexts within contexts; each numbered chapter assumes the viewpoint of a character, major or minor, in ways readers might need rereads to fully appreciate. The artist’s duotone-spun, vintage artwork recalls the quaint splendors of yesteryear, peppered with minor visual gags and worldbuilding details.... A splendiferous wowzer." — Kirkus Reviews
