Lou Gehrig's perseverance is legendary. During fourteen years as a first baseman for the New York Yankees, he played in a record 2,130 consecutive games, earning himself the nickname Iron Horse. Lou loved baseball and considered himself a very lucky man, even though on his thirty-sixth birthday he was diagnosed with a rare and fatal disease.

“I was inspired to write ‘There’s No Mouse In My New House’ after moving to my townhouse in Maryland. While sitting on the floor arranging photos in an album, I observed a small shadow exiting the from the room. It was too small to be anything other than a mouse. Soon, those dreadful creatures that I feared became the subject of this book. Perhaps writing stories about them is therapeutic because I have a sequel in the works.” –Jean Smith Andrews
