The Mouse That Snored - Waber

So my house is never quite like this, unless both my kids are sleeping at the same time... This couple managed to live silent lives, they ate quiet foods, whispered and even taught their bird and cat to be quiet.
One evening, scared in by a storm this little mouse finds refuge in their house. After eating a big dinner from the pantry he falls asleep. Soon the house is awakened by a rumbling that wakes everyone and breaks glass. It is so loud it even wakes mouse up. There standing in front of him are the people, cat and bird. They realized it was the mouse snoring! After telling him his plight the couple invited him to stay but now they wear earplugs. :)
