Synopsis

Mr. Maxwell's Mouse by Frank Asch

Mr. Maxwell is one contented cat. He has just been promoted. And what better way to celebrate than by going to his favourite restaurant, the Paw and Claw? He decides to live a little and order the house specialty - a live mouse. When the headwaiter asks if they should kill the mouse, Mr. Maxwell says that isn't necessary. He knows the Paw and Claw's mice are bred for politeness! But this particular live mouse can't keep quiet - would Mr. Maxwell like to add a little salt? Or order a glass of wine? Would he mind saying a little prayer before eating? My, what a bold and wordy mouse! Mr. Maxwell hopes the mouse doesn't give him indigestion?

Reviews

Readers will relish the formal language as a tongue-in-cheek counterpoint to a very funny, if macabre, story. ... A truly scrumptious treat.--School Library Journal, Starred Review
