The Lovereading4Kids comment

Posy Simmonds’ mouth-watering cakes and pastries are just part of the reason why Baker Cat is such an irresistible book, and not only for foodies. Simmonds’ busy pictures can be looked at time and time again for ever-more details about the clever rouses the cat and mice dream up to outwit the grumpy old baker and his wife. And for her shrewd insights into both animal and human behaviour. Glorious for readers of all ages.

Synopsis

Baker Cat by Posy Simmonds

All day long the baker's cat toils in the bakery and all night he is expected to catch the mice that run riot in the storeroom. If he doesn't catch any mice, the beastly baker tells him, he won't get any food. Too exhausted to chase after the cheeky rodents, the baker's cat becomes thin and sad and weepy, until the mice take pity on him.
