I read it in the 70's. It had a girl named or nicknamed Mouse. There may have been a firehouse or fireman in it. This is all I can remember other than I really loved it. I would love to find it and am not having luck in my search.

Yes, but a chapter book.

For literal decades I searched for a book from my childhood. Not constantly, but whenever something would remind me. I could only remember that it has to do with a witch as a next door neighbor. Google searches and bookbinders came up empty. Until last week I read the name Marjorie and it struck a chord so I renewed my search and found the effing book! I was so excited. Turns out Marjorie’s nickname is Mouse. I ordered the book off Amazon and was so glad to read it and see how much I remembered. Now I want to read the rest of the series but the books are $10 each and our libraries only have a couple of them.

It was a chapter book, probably geared towards a tween audience.

How sure are you of the mouse nickname? Do you remember any other plot points?
