"I am Willy the wind-up mouse, Annie's favorite toy.
They wind me to make me run around in circles, they cuddle me,
and at night I sleep on a soft white pillow between the doll
and a woolly teddy bear.
Everyone loves me."

"They don't care much for me," said Alexander sadly.
But he was happy to have found a friend.
"Let's go to the kitchen and look for crumbs," he said.

"Oh, I can't," said Willy. "I can only move when they wind me.
But I don't mind. Everybody loves me."
