Illustration of Marty with Milton - A Smart Way To Start

Marty’s World: Meet Milton

Marty’s next friend is called Milton the mouse.

He hides in his cage, in a small wooden house.

Sometimes he runs for a while in his wheel.

His legs move so fast, it makes Marty squeal!


He really is funny, with his tiny snout,

when he digs in the sawdust and throws it about.

He buries himself as deep down as can be,

but emerges quite quickly when Marty brings cheese.


He drinks from a bottle and nibbles on grains,

He likes when it’s sunny and sleeps when it rains.

What Marty loves most are his tiddly toes!

If she could, Marty’d take him wherever she goes!


Favourite Food

Seeds, slices of apple and cheese.
