A mouse-catching farce from Roald Dahl Funny Prize winning picture book creator 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.
