Love, love, love this story written by the author of "Babe." I read it to my children when they were 10 and 2, not expecting to laugh and like it as much as I did! I have now bought 3 more copies for my children (now grown and who remember it as one of their favorite stories) and their children.

I purchased this book about 20 years ago for my nephew. It's the story of a cat that didn't want to kill and eat the mice.....he loved them. Not only was it one of his favorite books as a child but mine as well as an adult. Everyone should read this book as it is great for children and adults. I'm reading it again now 20 years later. Love it.

Just what I expected
Meet Martin, his siblings Robin and Lark, his mother Dulcie Maude and later on the in the story, his father Pug. Unlike the rest of his family, Martin does not like killing and eating mice. One day he puts his paw on a pregnant mouse, Drusilla. What does he do? Martin puts her in a bathtub and declares he is going to keep her as a pet! What do mice eat? Enjoy Martin's conversations with the different farm animals as he investigates here and later. What does he do when Drusilla wants a husband?

This is a fun story which teaches kids, in a fun way, the responsibilities of looking after a pet. It is a lot of work as Martin soon finds out. Martin also learns some other lessons of how Drusilla, a wild creature, feels cooped up in a bath! Important to note that the words "wimp", "fool" and "stupid" are used in this story for parents who like to not encourage their children to speak like that. VERY cleverly written story though with many plays on words that probably will go over younger kids heads but older kids and adults will appreciate. How about the fox named Alec Smart?!

Great book from our library that is not only well written but is also delightfully illustrated. Enjoy! Thanks, Liz
