Without my Uncle Rat's consent

Just a quick comment about the abundance of mice and rats in children's books, tv, and video. It freaks me out. Mice are not cute. Rats are even less cute. Ugg... I just read a book to Ollie about a little rat riding a horse. Why is that necessary? An armadillo, opossum, or even a prairie dog, but a rat? Have these people ever seen a rat. Gross.

How very strange....Mother used to say EXACTLY the same thing. She could not stand to see all of the mice and rats that are supposed to be "cute". How interesting......

I totally agree... they are everywhere! Mice and rats gross me out. We had a mouse in the garage and it took all I had to even park my car in there. Why can't a cute little kitten be writing the horse?
