This classically illustrated chapter book tells the story of Spring, a field mouse. She lives with her babies–Parsley Snowflake, Oak, Pebble, and little Jellybean–under the front seat of an old abandoned car. This is the story of their marvelous (and sometimes not so marvelous) adventures. It is also the story of a very special purple ribbon that keeps Spring and her family safe and happy–and always together.
