While people roamed the Majestic Museum of Art, Norman the Doorman toured mice in the basement. Norman let his mice friends in by a tiny door in the side of the museum, and took great delight in talking about the art. In fact, Norman is something of an artist himself, and in his spare time turns the mouse traps the guards set for him into wire sculptures. Norman is very fond of one sculpture in particular, a mouse on a trapeze. When the museum announces a sculpture contest, Norman doesn’t hesitate to enter it. Though the sculpture is small, the judges are delighted with it and award it first prize. But the guard recognizes the sculpture as one of his mouse traps, and begins to search for Norman. Will the guard catch Norman? What will happen to Norman’s sculpture?
