Winner of the Bronze Smarties Book Award (2003) (UK)
Nobody knows why 5 dolls were left in a box under a bench in a busy park, but one day, a couple of retired mice discover them. The box is blocking their doorway. Soon, the dolls and the mice become friends...except for one of the dolls- the Countess-who's a little bit too hoity-toity to befriend any mice. But she doesn't have any choice and soon the dolls learn to stay away from the "legs" (humans), forage for food, and have a great deal of fun with the mice.
