Mr. Maxwell is one contented cat. He has just been promoted. And what better way to celebrate than by going to his favorite restaurant, the Paw and Claw? #He decides to live a little and order the house specialty — a live mouse. When the headwaiter asks if they should kill the mouse, Mr. Maxwell says that isn’t necessary. He knows the Paw and Claw’s mice are bred for politeness!#But this particular live mouse can’t keep quiet — would Mr. Maxwell like to add a little salt? Or order a glass of wine? Would he mind saying a little prayer before eating? My, what a bold and wordy mouse! Mr. Maxwell hopes the mouse doesn’t give him indigestion …#Richly illustrated and full of surprises. Mr. Maxwell’s Mouse is a David-and-Goliath story with claws, whiskers and tails.
