Gizmo Mouse lives alone on the moon, where everything is made of green cheese.  His daily life is consumed with gathering more and more cheese to hoard up and keep for himself.  

He sits a a long dining table alone eating as much cheese as he can, he swims in his big swimming pool alone, he wanders around his giants mansion on his flying car alone, his sits in his own personal movie theatre alone...until one day a spaceship arrives from the 'blue planet', Earth!

Gizmo decides to jump aboard the space rocket to see if the blue planet is made of blue cheese so he can consume and gather more and more for himself making him the richest mouse in the Universe!

On Earth he soon realises that there is no blue cheese to be found, but there are more adventures in store for him!

Doodad a friendly rat saves his life and they quickly become friends.  Life with Doodad becomes fun.  They play together, eat together and enjoy the experience of being alive.  

When faced with the opportunity to return to the moon, Gizmo realises that his lonely life of wealth accumulation is nowhere near as enjoyable as his fun filled life spent with his friend....he stays on Earth to enjoy his new happy home.

A wonderful tale instilling the important qualities life has to offer of love, laughter, friendship and sharing.
