The Lovereading4Kids comment
A brilliant picture book thankfully now back in print. The stunning, detailed and humorous illustrations tell the entertaining story of how Sampson the church cat and Arthur the church mouse take over the local church despite the reservations of the congregation! Every picture is stuffed full of tiny details to pore over. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Good Book Guide Review. Sampson the Church Cat had heard so many sermons about the meek being blessed that the Church Mice in the vestry were safe from his attentions, though his eyes gleamed...Witty text and humorous pictures crammed with detail provide a delightful satire on life at its most parochial.

The Church Mouse by Graham Oakley
Open this lavishly produced collector's item and rediscover the first heart-warming story in Graham Oakley's classic series, which won the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
When Arthur invites the other mice to live in the church, it doesn't take long for people to notice the rodent population explosion! It will take some very brave mice and one fairly courageous cat to persuade the townsfolk to welcome the new members of the congregation.
“Sometimes a book arrives that transports you back to your childhood… Oakley’s glorious illustrations are packed so full of detail and humour that something new is discovered with each reading.” - The Bookseller
