A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year!
A Chicago Tribune Best Children's Book of the Year!
Weak, sick, and hungry, a tabby cat seeks shelter in an old barn, where the mice take pity on her and make her a warm, cozy bed in the straw. . .
But as soon as she feels better, Marmalade the cat begins doing what cats do: chasing the mice!
When Smart Mouse stumbles across an old bell, the mice hatch a plan to make sure Marmalade can never sneak up on them again... but who will be able to get the collar onto the cat?
Retold by a master storyteller, this well-known fable is brought to life by bold, luminous illustrations of gentle mice, cozy barn corners, and of course, the magnificent feline rage of Marmalade on the hunt.
A perfect read-aloud for winter days.
