Mama Mouse was so excited, she nearly dropped her phone. “It’s Cousin Matilda. She’s going to marry Alexander!”
“It’s about time,” said Papa Mouse, looking up from his breakfast.
“Of course you can stay here!” Mama was saying into the phone. “A June wedding in the park! That’s perfect!”
When Mama hung up, Katie asked, “Will Dylan and I get to go?”
“Of course,” Mama said. “In fact, Matilda would like you to be her flower mouse. Would you like that?”
“Oh, yes!” Katie’s eyes sparkled with excitement. “When is it?”
“The day before your school Games Day. And Dylan will be the ring bearer!”
“I no bear!” said Dylan.
