Author(s): Peter Bently

Picture Books

From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize comes a pacy rhyming adventure, perfect for any child who loves trains. When a naughty little mouse steals cheese from the station master, a battle between cat and mouse follows! But they put their differences aside when a big, red steam train comes tearing down the track straight towards them! Exquisitely illustrated, this cat and mouse chase is a truly memorable ride that will be good for many repeated trips. Praise for Cats Ahoy by Peter Bently: 'It was the sort of book that you can read over and over and never get bored.' The Guardian.
