Mrs Mad's humble opinion
8/10 You are working hard. Well done.
What's it about?
A funny tale of the age-old struggle between mice and their arch-enemy, the cat.
What happens?
Angus the cat spoils everything for mice Lottie and Jack, even their Christmas Day. So, they decide to take action, but what can two small mice do to a big bad pussycat?
Is it easy to read?
Large text and simple sentences make this a good choice for those growing in ability. A lovely story for a parent to read to a child.
Anything else?
An appealing story from Nick Butterworth. His beautiful illustrations make this book really special. I'm sure young children will beg to hear it again and again, especially at Christmas. Hardback.
Other books by Nick Butterworth include Four Feathers in Percy's Park, Q Pootle 5, The Precious Pearl.
Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
Lottie and Jack are two mice who are blissfully happy, if it were not for Angus the cat. He steals their Christmas lunch and makes sure they have no Christmas presents. The mice decide to visit Gavin (or Ton Chi, as he prefers) to see if they can sort out their problem.
And what do you think?
Philippa Reece, Amazon.co.uk
The creator of the delightful Percy the Park Keeper books, Nick Butterworth, has created a superb festive story. Lottie and Jack are two mice who live in a barn and whose lives are made a misery by That Cat. That Cat has stolen all their Christmas stores
