When the Cat's Away (English Edition) Kindle版
When The Cat's Away, a picture book for young children, is set in Paris. A family of mice move into their new home beneath the Cafe des Chats. Gussie and her twin brother, Pierre, are keen to explore their new surroundings. It is not long before Pierre's nose for adventure puts his life at risk and takes them far away. It takes some luck and all of Gussie's bravery and ingenuity to stage his rescue. Their triumphant journey through the streets of Paris back to their home almost comes unstuck. And then at the very last minute they realise they have another problem - the resident cat is not quite as far away as they had hoped!

A Parisian mouse adventure
2017年9月22日 - (Amazon.com)
What a beautiful children's picture book this is. The story is about two curious mice, Pierre and Gussie, who run into trouble on the streets of Paris. Their exciting adventures have been imagined by children's author Donna Gibbs, and wonderfully complemented by the witty illustrations of Lionel King. The story has a warmth and charm that is sure to leave a smile on your face - something for adults and children alike here.
