Mouse Trouble

Written by John Yeoman

Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Mouse Trouble Synopsis

The grumpy miller is having mouse trouble, so he buys himself a large tabby cat. Fortunately for the mice, the cat is too unfit to catch even a single mouse. But when the miller loses his temper and threatens to drown the poor tabby, the mice decide they must intervene, as they have grown surprisingly fond of him . . .

Mouse Trouble Press Reviews

This is a clever tale that uses very accessible language. There is so much detail in (Quentin Blake's) illustrations that each time you look at them you notice something new. -- Jo Heffer * The Bookbag * Combining the writing talent of John Yeoman and the wonderful illustrations of Quentin Blake is inspired! This book should be in every home and school library. * Parents In Touch * Blake's wonderful illustrations mean that children would want to return to this book again and again. A lovely story. * EYE * The nocturnal shenanigans make this an especially appealing bedtime read-aloud, and the lengthier narrative will tempt and challenge adventurous beginning readers. * Booklist, USA *
