Our Menagerie

This morning at the library, I was excited to find a book called Animals in My House. "Finally," I thought, "a book that Harriet will be able to relate to." How disappointed was I then, when I discovered the book was about domestic animals, exclusively pets? And does anybody know a book we can use to help explain to our daughter the mice under the floors, the squirrel in the wall, spiders on the bathroom ceiling and that family of raccoons outside the door? Or is this just a board book begging to be written?
