Meet Tibs, son of Toodle, son of Tiddles, son of Toby. A trusted employee of the Post Office. Tibs is paid 2s 6d a week to catch mice but he prefers making friends with them! Join Tibs on a curious cat and mouse adventure where everything is not quite what it seems....

There was trouble at the Post Office: holes in the mails sacks! Letters torn to shreds! Stamps licked through to the glue! When the postmaster discovers that mice are to blame, he decides to employ a brave new cat to sort them out. Tibs comes from a long line of Post Office cats, so his new career should be a piece of cake, except that instead of catching the mice, Tibs would rather make friends with them! Can Tibs teach them how to tidy up, instead of nibbling the post, and will he be able to deliver the reward that he promised? Soon, these unlikely friends are on an adventure that takes them down to the underground Mail Rail where, together, Tibs and the mice find themselves catching more than they bargained for!

This charming story based on the life of a real cat called Tibs who was employed by Post Office in the 1950s to catch mice, earning a tidy sum of 2s 6d a week for his dedicated service. With a career spanning 14 years, the real Tibs became a Post Office celebrity. Featuring a cast of warm and loveable characters, this book will have children captivated by a nostalgic world of stamps, letters and underground mail trains.
