Spinifex Mouse is the heart warming tale of Cheeky, a spinifex hopping mouse, who lives in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Cheeky is an adventurous little mouse who loves to leap high into the air and practice acrobatic tricks. Every morning, when his family have returned to their burrow to sleep after a nights foraging, Cheeky sneaks out to look for more food and practice his flips. Each day, he ventures a little further from the burrow.

One day, when Cheeky is far from home, he shows off his clever tricks in front of a hungry snake and becomes swept up in a heart-stopping and very risky adventure!
