A confident but inexperienced cat is certain she has scared all the mice out of her house, but things are not always as they seem... From the award-winning author-illustrator of The Black Rabbit, comes the story of Clemmie - a brave, fearsome cat who knows exactly how to catch a mouse. And she would prove it, too, except that she's never actually seen a mouse. Perhaps, she thinks, they're all afraid of her. But wait ... is that a pink tail, or a dangling ribbon? A whiskery nose, or a spider's legs? Kids will love spotting the mischievous mouse dressed up in disguise throughout this adorable picture book, and will root for Clemmie to discover the mouse right under her nose once and for all!

About the Author:

Philippa Leathers studied graphic design, illustration and animation, and currently works as a freelance animator and illustrator. Her debut picture book, The Black Rabbit, was shortlisted for the inaugural Oscar's First Book Prize, and her animation credits include work on the Charlie and Lola and Peppa Pig TV series. She lives with her family, a grey tabby cat named Emmi and two rabbits, Benji and Kiki, in Kent. Find her online at www.philippaleathers.com and on Twitter as @PhiliLeathers.

From School Library Journal:

Toddler-PreS—Observant toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy spotting the mouse hidden in nearly every pencil and watercolor illustration, as Clemmie the cat confidently smirks at her supposed mouse-hunting prowess. Clemmie researches tell-tale signs of a mouse from a book, but is led astray by ordinary household items such as a long pink tail that turns out to be the ribbon of a hat, and so on. Gradually, the mouse assembles a costume that hides all distinctive mousy features. Clemmie's bushy-tailed fear at finally uncovering a real-live mouse is quite amusing. Two can play at that game, as Clemmie works on her own art of disguise to finally chase the mouse around. Yellow endpapers feature cat and mouse tracks. VERDICT A sweetly funny tale for storytimes or one-on-one read-alouds.—Madigan McGillicuddy, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, Atlanta, GA
