The Church Mouse

 
The Church Mouse
Graham Oakley
 

Open this lavishly produced collector's item and rediscover the first heart-warming story in Graham Oakley's classic series, which won the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

When Arthur invites the other mice to live in the church, it doesn't take long for people to notice the rodent population explosion! It will take some very brave mice and one fairly courageous cat to persuade the townsfolk to welcome the new members of the congregation.

Told with a gentle, ironic humour as Oakley pokes fun at Sampson in words and pictures, this is a story to savour again and again.

“Sometimes a book arrives that transports you back to your childhood… Oakley’s glorious illustrations are packed so full of detail and humour that something new is discovered with each reading.” The Bookseller
