Despite my strong prejudice against any text which uses the world 'see' instead of 'look at' (shades of 'see the boats, John!') I have to allow that in this case it does sound far less odd than one would expect and that this is a charming and very successful book.
Something has frightened mouse and set him running through the farmyard. What is making that awful noise? A cheerful, easy to read chase through the pages (with plenty of animal noises and interesting pictures) reveals the source of all the trouble. Fun for little ones to try and guess before all is revealed and success for both shared reading and younger read-alones. Older children were a bit sniffy about it once they knew... but did enjoy reading it to nursery or reception children.
This could well become a classic; it has all the right 'feel' to it.
