Mickey's Mini Farm is a book about a young boy who is not only a klutz, but a very normal boy who likes to explore and chase dreams. Mickey likes to play with his friend, Carter. They like to swim and ride bikes together. Mickey badly needs a new bed, his bed keeps falling down! He also needs a new home, his is too small! Life just isn't good for him at first. Mickey's Mother thinks he not only needs a new bed, but he needs to learn more science at home. Mickey's Dad needs help in the garden, so he recruits Mickey, but Mickey plants jelly beans instead of corn. It wasn't long until Mickey earned the nickname, Jelly Bean at school. One day when Mickey was riding his bike he stumbled on to a small farm just on the out-skirts of town, with just the house he thought he needed already on it. Later he was with his parents and wanted to ride down a picticular road. He pretends to accidently stumble on to this farm along with his parents. Naturally, they thought they found the farm. It wasn't long until it became known as Mickey's Mini Farm.
