 What is so special about the mouse called Wolf?
I don’t know.

Uh, I don’t know. Can they?

I don’t think so. What kinds of songs does Wolf sing?

Yes, Wolfgang Amadeus. Do you remember any of the songs?
Uh, Three Blind Mice and another one, I can’t remember.

In his house.

Her mom and...who else?

Wolf is sort of her pet mouse. Would you like a pet mouse? pet mouse...? Uh, yes! I’m going to carry the pet mouse and then I can handle a dog!
