Books > Children's & Teenage
From twice-Kate Greenaway Winner comes an exquisite story within a story, featuring a mouse who is forced to tell stories to save his life, a cat who plans to eat said mouse as soon as the story is finished, and our protagonist’s protagonist, a princess in trouble. Gorgonzola watched Brie with her tail twitching …then she pounced. Brie the mouse is caught between the claws of Gorgonzola the cat.
Desperate to survive, Brie starts telling Gorgonzola a story…It’s a showstopping tale – about a runaway princess, a cat that can grow to the size of a panther, an enchanted feast, a vanishing cavern and a quest to find a magical herb…
But Gorgonzola is getting hungry…If Brie wants his life to be spared, this must be the best story he has ever told. A dazzling story within a story that you won’t be able to put down and accompanied with stunning interior art.
