It’s nice to be here cozy,
Lying snug inside my bed.
But how can I get sleepy
When there’s cheese inside my head?I think I’ll sneak and scamper
And go looking ’round the house.
I’ll find the cheese and bring it home;
It’s my job to be a Mouse!

Cheese Inside Your Head is the whimsical story of Fuzzy, a mischievous mouse who encounters danger when he follows his curiosity and hungry appetite. Fuzzy uses his coping skills and quick thinking to escape Kitty Cat…and learns an important life lesson along the way.
