From twice-Kate Greenaway WINNER comes an exquisite story within a story, featuring a mouse who is forced to tell stories to save his life, a cat who plans to eat said mouse as soon as the story is finished, and our protagonist's protagonist, a princess in trouble.

Gorgonzola watched Brie with her tail twitching . . . then she pounced.

Brie the mouse is caught between the claws of Gorgonzola the cat. Desperate to survive, Brie starts telling Gorgonzola a story . . . It's a showstopping tale - about a runaway princess, a cat that can grow to the size of a panther, an enchanted feast, a vanishing cavern and a quest to find a magical herb . . .

But Gorgonzola is getting hungry . . . If Brie wants his life to be spared, this must be the best story he has ever told.

A dazzling story within a story that you won't be able to put down and accompanied with stunning interior art..
