Review:This sprightly cautionary tale in enthusiastic support of the adage "One good turn deserves another," tells what happens when the family dog awakes from a nap resolving that he will not chase the cat today. His surprising change of heart inspires the family cat to decide not to chase the resident mouse. Unwilling to be out done, the mouse determines not to chase the lady of the house that day. When that gray-haired grand dame learns that "nobody's chasing nobody today!" she decides to throw a party. And what small listener/viewer will be able to resist that? This is a slight but merry confection for the very young.
