Mouse in the House

By Russell Ayto

A farcical catch-the-mouse caper from award-winning comic writer Russell Ayto

Mr and Mrs Homeowner have a mouse in their house, and they want it gone. Mr Bosh –big chief mouse-catcher, and Mr Bumble – assistant mouse-catcher (wearing shoes that squeak like a mouse) arrive on the scene. They try all the old tricks: setting a trap, bringing in a (big!) cat, inviting an elephant round... but the mouse is always one step ahead.

  • A comedy farce worthy of Laurel and Hardy from award-winning author Russell Ayto
  • Russell Ayto’s comic genius shines with each failed attempt to catch a sharp-witted mouse.
  • Russell Ayto has won many prizes including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, the Booktrust Early Years Award and the Nestle Children’s Book Prize Gold Award, and has twice been shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
