The lights are out—and so are the impy house mice—in this delightful nighttime cat-and-mouse adventure.

Could it be true that mice are...nice? That’s certainly what the cat thinks in this after-dark romp just perfect for young children. Featuring whimsical, comforting text and vibrant collage illustrations from Caldecott Honor medalist Lois Ehlert, this engaging story puts a fresh spin on the classic cat-and-mouse dynamic.
