'I will have the colourful parrot soup,' the lady said, 'with extra beaky bits.'
'And I,' said her husband, 'will have mouse noses on toast.'
The waiter flipped open his notebook and wrote this down. "Would that be with whiskers, madam, or without?"
Hiding on the restaurant table, Paul Mouse's world has just turned upside down.
Surely the man is making a joke? Isn't mouse noses on toast just a big myth?
Gathering his friends - Sandra the Christmas tree decoration, Rowley Barker Hobbs, the sheepdog, and the Tinby, a kind of monster - Paul becomes determined to find the truth.
So begins an adventure involving mouse activists, the prime minister, cheese addicts and a wildly insane Tinby. But what awaits them all at the mouse noses abbatoir? Will they escape with their whiskers intact?
A crazy, charming tale with a wonderfully cheesy ending.
