The characters of this story are the mouse and the boy. They live in the boy's house. The boy gives the mouse a cookie. Then the mouse asks for a glass of milk. So the boy gives it to him. After words the mouse wants to do a whole bunch of stuff and I think the mouse drives the boy crazy trying to get all of the stuff for him. Read the book to find out what the mouse wants to do.

This book is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I almost busted a gut. The mouse is asking the boy for so much stuff. It looks like the boy gets tired of doing it all. My favorite part of the book is when the mouse asks for a pair of scissors because he wants to cut his hair. The book is also a part of a series of even more funny books. In my opinion the mouse was the most interesting character.

I think this book would be best suited for elementary and middle school students. It is also good for people who bug other people to do a bunch of stuff for them. They could relate to this book.
