Mice In the City: London by Ami Shin


Play hide and squeak with over 1700 mice in this book of observation and London landmarks.  Every page is teeming with surprises and young children will have something new to spot every time they open the book!   It’s a busy morning and all across London mice dressed in top hats and smart overcoats are making their way to work by bus, by tube and by train.  The mice of Parliament are at work baking cakes and fishing to feed fat cats who are arriving in a hot air balloon, while artistic mice perform surreal magic tricks inside Tate Modern.  The Gherkin’s businessmice are busily practising five-pin bowling, while over at the Cheesegrater, mice young and old enjoy hydrosliding through twelve storeys of watery fun!  Every page is teeming with surprises and invites children to play ‘hide-and-squeak’ with a black-and-white cat, a mouse in a bee costume and a mysterious wrapped gift hidden on every page.
