A cheeky tale follows a speedy mouse as he taunts a progression of hungry animals – with a wickedly funny final twist. “I’m the fastest mouse in the world!” Jake claims. “I’m like the wind. I am faster than lightning!” But will speed alone keep boastful Jake from being caught by a cat, a fox, a wolf, or a bear? “Can’t catch me!” he shouts. Well, clever Old Tom Cat will just have to see about that. . . . Expressive and energetic illustrations pair with a fun cumulative text in a mischievous story that begs to be read aloud.
Timothy Knapman has written lots of picture books, including Soon, illustrated by Patrick Benson. He writes both fiction and nonfiction, and his books have been translated into fifteen languages. In his spare time, he writes plays and musicals, because he believes that onstage, as between the covers of a book, the real and the fantastical can collide, and that is where all great storytelling comes from. Timothy Knapman lives in England.
