Maybe When You’re Older

Edna Kremer
AGE: 3-6

Tal`s mother and father will not let him keep a pet. He finds a curly- haired dog and a mischievous cat, but his parents just keep saying, "No. Maybe when you`re older..." So when Tal`s friend gives him a little white mouse as a gift, he decides not to ask his parents for permission, but to hide it instead. The mouse goes everywhere with Tal and causes all sorts of funny mishaps. And when it finally escapes from its hiding place, it wreaks havoc in the house. So of course Tal`s mother and father find out about it. Then Tal asks: "Can I keep it... before I`m a little older?" Tal`s parents realize how much he wants to have a pet, and decide to compromise: Tal can keep his mouse, but only if it lives in a cage. (And his father even gives him a little female mouse, to keep the first one company).
