The Cat and the Mouse and the Runaway Train

Written by Peter Bently

Illustrated by Steve Cox

The Cat and the Mouse and the Runaway Train Synopsis

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
