Mouzart is a musical mouse who lives in my piano and plays by the light of the moon. There’s a big problem, though—he won’t let me sleep! In the middle of the night, while I’m lying in bed, Mouzart bounces around the piano, creating lively songs. He’s quite a creative little mouse, but I am so tired! I wish he would move out soon. What can I do? Mouzart, finish that tune! In this delightful story and song, author and singer/songwriter Carol A. Grolman brings a genuine experience to life. You can imagine her surprise when, very early one morning, her piano started to play all by itself! When her husband looked inside, it was clear that a mouse had made his home there. Every night the mouse would run up and down the hammers, not letting anyone sleep! Being the little composer that he was, he eventually earned himself the name “Mouzart.” Named after W. A. Mozart, Mouzart will be a true delight to anyone, especially those with an interest in music. Everybody can enjoy singing along, asking the mischievous Mouzart to please let Carol and her husband get some sleep.
