The Mouse and His Child

Russell Hoban (Author)
Available

Description

Funny, thought-provoking and moving, this much loved story is a true classic.

'What are we, Papa?' the toy mouse child asked his father. 'I don't know,' the father answered. 'We must wait and see.'

So begins the story of a tin father and son who dance under a Christmas tree until they break the ancient clockwork rules and are themselves broken. Thrown away, then rescued from a dustbin and repaired by a tramp, they set out on a dangerous quest for a family and a place of their own - the magnificent doll's house, the plush elephant and the tin seal they had once know in the toy shop.

'Hugely funny, provocative, pathetic and heroic.' TLS

'Brilliantly plotted . . . a spellbinder . . . it has a style that glows and crackles.' Spectator
