How do you eat your lunch while it's talking to you? This was Mr. Maxwell's dilemma when he walked into his favorite restaurant, Paw and Claw, to celebrate his job promotion with a fabulous meal. Upon ordering the house speciality, raw mouse, Mr. Maxwell received a meal that recommended the perfect wine to accompany it, suggested the essential ingredients to season the dish, and requested a moment of prayer before he was eaten. What was a very HUNGRY and very PROPER cat to do? The young reader will truly enjoy this unusual story of the eternal cat and mouse conflict. 'Mr. Maxwell's Mouse' by Frank Asch and Devin Asch, with its unique dialogue and vivid illustrations, is truly a feast for the eyes and as well as the mind.
