"Where the pole beans climb, where the tomatoes grow fat, where the onions smell sweet and the corn is yellow as the summer sun, that's the garden of Clem -- Farmer Clem." So begins this story about Baby Mouse, a tiny mouse who loves to go exploring in the garden. But watch out You never know what might happen when Baby climbs into a head of lettuce, or up a tomato plant, or when there's a fox on the prowl.

These are some of the ingredients of The Pea Patch Jig -- a book as refreshing as a summer evening in Vermont.

Inspired by the traditional song The Pea Patch Jig, which was unearthed by the great songwriter singer John Hartford.
