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 logo 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)
~ Andrea Rayner

Synopsis

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.
