Publisher Description

The brave little Manxmouse is on a special journey. But can he survive fearsome foxes, terrified elephants and cats big and small to reach his destination? The Manxmouse is one-of-a-kind. He,s the strangest little mouse you,ll ever see, with bright blue fur, huge rabbit ears and a distinct lack of tail. But Manxmouse doesn,t mind being different. He knows that destiny awaits him, and so Manxmouse sets out on an exciting adventure. He meets tigers and hawks and dastardly pet-shop owners, but there,s someone he dreads and desires to meet more than anyone else. The someone who has been waiting for him all along...the Manx Cat.
