Synopsis

The Cat and the Mouse and the Runaway Train by Peter Bently

From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize comes a pacy rhyming adventure, perfect for any child who loves trains. When a naughty little mouse steals cheese from the station master, a battle between cat and mouse follows! But they put their differences aside when a big, red steam train comes tearing down the track straight towards them! Exquisitely illustrated, this cat and mouse chase is a truly memorable ride that will be good for many repeated trips. 'This is a book that children will really enjoy... It's a book that will give children's sense of adventure a boost up the bottom.' - Rhino Reads
