Was that a beaded dragon? A long-eared cat with rings around its tail?"" The gila monster and ringtail cat are properly labeled on the endpapers, as are the several other creatures Mousekin finds in the desert to which he has inadvertently traveled by trailer. After a night's encounters the passive investigator rolls off in a passing tumbleweed. . . back to the trailer for the return trip. Another of Mousekin's pale, plotless nature lessons, available in English and Spanish.
