The Mousehole Cat book. What an uplifting surprise to find that the town, Mousehole, is real. I wondered if this brave sojourn occurred and hoped their town really honours Tom and Mowzer, with loving and grateful reverence at Christmas.
The Mousehole Cat" was the winner of the British Book Award for the Illustrated Children's Book of the Year and the British Design Production Award (Children's Books). I wish Barber and Bayley would team up again. It was also shortlisted for the Smarties Prize, the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Children's Book Award. There is also a marvelous video version of this book which has interviews with the author and illustrator that is absolutely fascinating. 2 people found this helpful.
