The Mice in The Churchyard

Kes Gray & Sally Anne Lambert


The lovely village church at Copford Green is famous for its remarkable medieval murals and now it is the setting for a fantastic children’s picture book. A growing population of mice are overrunning the churchyard and all the cats of the parish join together to in an epic struggle to catch them. But they soon find that the Copford Green mice are not so easy to catch. They try creeping and pouncing and hiding in trees but all their plans are unsuccessful and mice always manage to escape.  Even Monty the local mouse catching champion has no luck. This is a charming story told in rhyme, brilliantly illustrated and with a surprise on the last page.
