Shortlisted for the prestigious Sheffield Children's Book Award 2011
Prize-winning illustrator Mini Grey tells a tender and thought provoking fable about friendship. Cat, Dog and Mouse live happily together; while Cat does the housework, Dog tends the garden and Mouse does the cooking, creating a wonderful fondue every night. But, one day, a stranger turns up and makes the three look at their life anew. Do Cat and Mouse really want a garden filled only with bones? Do Cat and Dog really want to eat fondue every night? It’s an unsettling time but, reconsidering after the upheaval, the three friends discover that life has got better. As ever, Mini Grey makes the most imaginative use of her pages to tell a story in both words and pictures.
Three By the Sea by Mini Grey
In a house by the sea there happily live a dog, a cat and a mouse. Well, happily enough until a stranger knocks on the door one night, offering them each a special free gift. Who is this mysterious salesman blowing into their little world and turning it upside-down? And can their happy home survive his trouble-making gifts?
