All day long the baker's cat toils in the bakery and all night he is expected to catch the mice that run riot in the storeroom. If he doesn't catch any mice, the beastly baker tells him, he won't get any food. Too exhausted to chase after the cheeky rodents, the baker's cat becomes thin and sad and weepy, until the mice take pity on him and together they concoct a clever plan . . .

"Posy Simmonds delights as ever with a subversive story rich in humour and glorious in its bakery details." Guardian

"Anything by Posy Simmonds is a must for parents as well as children" Evening Standard

A lovely funny book  about a cat who is treated badly but gets his revenge by making an alliance with the mice and tricking his foolish  owners. Both children loved it and there are lots of illustrations throughout.

The main character is a hard done by cat who works in a bakery. He forms an unlikely alliance with the mice in order to be treated better by the owners. My daughter enjoyed the story, but didn't really get the irony of the ending.
