Fun because it had flaps to lift, so interactive though not a pop-up, and the drawings and flaps were good, but the story was eh. Why doesn't Billy say he's afraid of a cat rather than a spooky shadow? Is the house abandoned, or is it illustrated as furnished but empty of people just because that makes a prettier picture, and if the former why does it have such spreads of food?

Maybe the illustrations aren't that good anyway: the kids thought the cat was a dog, and this was a Persian (or other flat-faced variety of) cat.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763640158, Hardcover)

Children will love being in on the joke in this tale of two mice on a hunt for food, one oblivious to the whiskered menace lurking in the shadows.

In the big old house, Bo and Billy have run out of food and must venture out of their mouse hole to search for some. While Bo fearlessly explores every nook and cranny, he chides Billy for being afraid of everything — but maybe Billy has good reason to be! With Ruth Brown's enchanting artwork full of rich details and visual sleight-of-hand, this novelty tale of brotherly adventure and bravery will send eagle-eyed readers on a storybook hunt of their own.

When Bo and Billy need to leave their cozy mouse home and search the big old house for food and supplies, Bo fearlessly explores every nook and cranny while Billy tries to warn him about the cat he sees.
