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?

Synopsis

Eeeek, Mouse! by Lydia Monks

A rip-roaring read-aloud (shout-aloud) picture book about a small girl saving a large family of mice from her father's amazing mouse trap...and the pet cat, from the internationally acclaimed illustrator of Julia Donaldson's What the Ladybird Heard. 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?
