Uncle Dan brought his nephew Otis a very special gift: supremely intelligent mouse named Alice. Otis is overjoyed - he has wanted a pet mouse forever! But, how long will Alice be able to stay? It's up to Otis and Alice to convince Mom, Mama, and Rocket the cat that their family has room in it for this particularly imaginative and energetic little mouse. 

Otis and Alice, originally published in Quebec as Ulysse et Alice (éditions du Remue-Ménage), was part of the selection of Communication-Jeunesse 2007-2008. Ulysse et Alice is also a popular tool for teachers, and was included in the training kit Family Diversity and Strategies to End Homophobia, which is distributed in schools and universities by the LGBT Family Coalition.
