The Lovereading4Kids comment
Little kitten Clemmie knows everything about how to catch a mouse. In fact, she’s so good at it that she’s never even seen one in her house – they’re too scared to come in. Sharp little eyes will spot that there is indeed a mouse in Clemmie’s house, a clever one who’s managed to don a disguise! Children will enjoy being one step ahead of Clemmie, who is a very sweet little character, and will especially like the twist at the end where Clemmie has a light-bulb moment and learns a new trick of her own. A thoroughly charming picture book. ~ Andrea Reece
The Good Book Guide Review. Clemmie is a fearsome mouse-catcher – but she has never seen a mouse. She keeps thinking she has spotted one, but is wrong. Then one day, when she does finally spot a mouse, it gets away. The clever little mouse has been wearing disguise. Maybe Clemmie can try this too… This is an enchanting book with cute characters, charming illustrations and a diverting storyline. (Ages 2–5)

How to Catch a Mouse by Philippa Leathers
From the author-illustrator of The Black Rabbit, comes the story of Clemmie - the cat who knows exactly how to catch a mouse. And she would prove it, too, except that she's never actually seen a mouse. Perhaps, she thinks, they're all afraid of her. But wait ...is that a pink tail, or a dangling ribbon? A whiskery nose, or a spider's legs? Kids will love spotting the pesky mouse throughout this adorable, sprightly picture book, and will root for Clemmie to discover the mouse right under her nose once and for all.
Praise for The Black Rabbit, the debut picture book from Philippa Leathers:
‘A charming tale’ Junior
‘The endlessly fascinating magic of a shadow is imaginatively reflected in this touching story’ The Guardian
