Clemmie is quite proud of herself because she is convinced that she is an expert on catching mice. She's never seen a mouse in her house so Clemmie is quite sure that her reputation has kept the mice away.

As you'll see as you read this humorous book, that isn't really the case here. Since she has never really seen a live mouse, Clemmie is perhaps not the best kitty to consult on catching the rodents. In fact, there is a mouse sharing her domicile with her but Clemmie doesn't realize it.

How the mouse manages to fool Clemmie is the subject of this clever story. Also, you'll discover how once the kitten figures out what is happening right under her nose she will be able to turn the tables on her unwanted guest too.

The text of this picture book is easy enough that it won't take a young reader long to master the narrative and then be able to share the story with her/his parents, siblings or friends.
