Eeeek, a mouse! squeaked Mummy. Aaahh, I don't like mice! squawked Daddy. Oooh, I love mice! squealed Minnie. But can Minnie keep the poor little mouse safe with a Dad and a cat so intent on catching it?

Eeeek, a mouse! squeaked Mummy. Aaahh, I don't like mice! squawked Daddy. Oooh, I love mice! squealed Minnie.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
