An enchanting performance starring a little mouse who was born to boogie and a cat who can't stop crooning.

Other mice scurry, but not Tessa. She boogies, bops shimmies, and hops. On her family's raids through Mrs. Timboni's kitchen, Tessa tangos across the teapot and sashays with saltshakers.

Soon Mrs. Timboni brings home a cat--but Oscar is no ordinary cat. He doesn't like to nap or chase mice. Instead, he croons on Mrs. Timboni's counter, sings in her sinks, and trills on the dining room table. Is it any wonder that there's magic in the air when these two talents finally meet?
