Have you ever wondered if a cat and a mouse can be friends? If so, this book has the answer! When farm cat Martin adopts a mouse called Drusilla as his pet, he is in for more than he imagined! Everything goes well until Drusilla becomes tired of living in the tub. Then, shortly afterward, she abandons Martin. Martin is sad and confused until he becomes a pet himself and realizes the importance of freedom and friendship. I recommend this book to anyone who likes cats, mice, or just likes cute animal stories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Martin's Mice was the only book i read in elementary school and I checked it out about 3 times. It's the cutest book I've read so far. What is there not to love about a cat that has mice as pets? It's the whole Stuart Little thing over but on a farm without the humans.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
