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...
An exuberant and funny Yeoman-Blake story in which hundreds of mice trick a grumpy miller.
"A funny and delightful feel-good title." --Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews
