As the days grow colder, little Whitefoot the Wood Mouse decides it is time to find a warm, safe place to spend the winter. The happy little creature finds the perfect spot in Farmer Brown's barn, where he meets a friendly stranger, tumbles into a life-threatening situation, and learns the meaning of the word trust.

A master storyteller, Thornton Burgess instills in his young readers important lessons about animals, nature, and the environment. Rich in the warmth, simplicity, and nostalgic charm of an earlier day, this entertaining tale will beguile today's youngsters as much as it enthralled children generations ago.
