There were three creepy-crawly people hiding in the plate-rack. Two of them got away; but the littlest one he caught.

She shut herself up in the nut-cellar while Mr. Jackson pulled out the bees-nest. He seemed to have no objection to stings.

She gathered up the moss and the remains of the beeswax.
She fetched soft soap, and flannel, and a new scrubbing brush from the storeroom. But she was too tired to do any more. First she fell asleep in her chair, and then she went to bed.

She swept, and scrubbed, and dusted; and she rubbed up the furniture with beeswax, and polished her little tin spoons.

When it was all beautifully neat and clean, she gave a party to five other little mice, without Mr. Jackson.

So they handed him out acorn-cupfuls of honey-dew through the window, and he was not at all offended.
