Description

“Can’t catch me!” sang Jake. “I’m the fastest mouse in the world!”

A wicked, wild read-aloud romp from Timothy Knapman, author of Soon, and Simona Ciraolo, winner of the Sebastian Walker Prize, this is the story of Jake … the fastest mouse there ever was. NO ONE can catch him. Not the fox, not the wolf, not even the bear. “Can’t catch me,” teases Jake. “I’m the fastest mouse in the world!” But cunning Old Tom Cat has his eye on that sweet, young mouse for his dinner and he’s got a plan…

Publisher Review

"Timothy's jaunty text is perfectly complimented by Simona's exquisite pencil illustrations, which almost bounce off the page with vigour." * WRD * There are echoes of The Gingerbread Man in this stonker of a story; but Timothy Knapman has taken the bones of the traditional tale and created a snappy spin-off that is certain to go down well with young listeners (if mine are anything to go by) who will relish its denouement. Simona Ciraolo's scenes of showing off, sprinting and strutting speak even louder than all Knapman's wonderful dialogue. This is another genius author/illustrator pairing. * Red Reading Hub * An absolute treat to read aloud, this comic tale puts a new spin on the story of the gingerbread man. [...] Great fun. * LoveReading, Andrea Reece *
