Baker Cat

By Posy Simmonds

This delightful tale of triumph over adversity is Posy Simmonds at her absolute best.

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
