Sorrel Anderson hasn’t always been a writer. Once upon a time she worked as a civil servant, and it was there that she found the inspiration for her characters – quite literally. One morning she came into work to find a pair of mice in a plastic bag under her desk, eating up her biscuits. She named them Purvis and Mickey Thompson, and that very day, the Clumsies were born!
Hilarious chaos is created by the resourceful Clumsies who have a wish to be helpful but a habit of making everything go very badly wrong. This time, to help Howard out of having to make a fool of himself, the Clumsies decide to wreck the nasty Mr Bullerton’s Big Show. From then on, everything that can possibly go wrong does! The slapstick humour at the heart of the story is infectious.

Three crazy, funny stories, featuring the two clumsiest talking mice you'll ever meet... Shortlisted for the ROALD DAHL FUNNY PRIZE 2010 `The mouse started to trundle away, glancing at Howard over its shoulder, nervously. You may well glance at me nervously, said Howard, picking up an empty water glass and placing it over the mouse. You'll stay in there so I can eat my breakfast in peace. I shall deal with you afterwards... ' But you can't really deal with the Clumsies, afterwards or at any time. Once you've got them, you're stuck with them. From the moment when Howard Armitage first finds two talking mice under his desk - the inimitable and hilarious Purvis and Mickey Thompson - his life, and his belongings, are turned forever upside down.
