The Monstrous Stories: Day the Mice Stood Still by Paul Harrison, Sam Williams

One day, all the mice in a town only famous for the world's biggest ball of wool stand bolt upright! A flying saucer from outer space, full of alien cats intent on shrinking all the cows and stealing them away, has landed. A young girl, Jilly McCafferty, and her friends have a plan to scare the cats away. Hilarious fun.
