Once there were four mouse brothers: Rick, Mick, Vick, and Nick. Nick is the youngest and always seems to be a bit behind. Whether that be when they are riding bikes or even picking out clothes. But it turns out that Nick is just a late bloomer.
Given the way mice produce young, I assumed that the four mouse brothers were quadruplets and Nick was just a bit behind his siblings. Having been a late bloomer myself, I can definitely relate to books like this. Nick is adorable. He is evident proof that you don't always have to be the bravest or the brightest or the best. Sometimes it is about being you and working with what you have. The message is simple, but it doesn't need to be more than what it is. Just like Nick.
