Let me reassure and elaborate, then.

I am still enjoying this story.  I would read it to my four-year-old 
nephews, if I had any remaining that age.  I suspect they'd ask the same 
questions I'm asking, though.  Children *always* ask Why, Why, Why.  As 
an adult reader, it is my job on such occasions to come up with very 
quick answers.  It's a rare treat for me to do this *and* get feedback 
from the writer... so, thanks, Dee.  Knowing what you've told me over 
the history of the series, I'd probably now say...

"They're magic mice.  Magic does exist in this world.  But wizards can't 
use it.  Only brave little heroes can.  And that's why the Queen has a 
mouseketeer instead of a wizard."
