Mousie Love by Dori Chaconas

Tully falls in love with Frill at first sight. He asks her repeatedly to marry him, but doesn't wait for an answer. He rushes around (narrowly avoiding the cat) finding her a house, food, and stars. Finally, when he finishes his rushing around, Frill answers. Yes! She will marry him.

What I thought: A cute story with quite a developed plot. I love Tully's bumbling. Ever since reading Emily Bearn's Tumtum & Nutmeg, I've had a fondness for mice couples. The illustrations are bright and appealing.
