A picture book based on a song by Grammy-award winner Janis Ian
Follow the romping adventures of a tiny dapper mouse, who runs away to sea, suffers from sea sickness, narrowly escapes a grisly end at the paws of the ship’s captain – a cat – and escapes back to shore where he settles down in married bliss. The moral of the tale, it’s better to be at home than someone’s dinner at sea. Illustrations by Ingrid & Dieter Schubert are full of quirky detail and humour.
‘Janis Ian easily conquers a new audience with her adorable mouse, both book and music. The story is as full of joy and adventure as any young reader could want. And as an added bonus, your child will sing him/herself to sleep with the tune.’– Jane Yolen, noted children’s author, often called ‘The Hans Christian Andersen of America’

‘A little whimsy, a little darkness, a little music for a song turned into a picture book by veteran singer/ songwriter Ian. …The Schuberts’ illustrations are brightly colored and often surreal. … Both words and music are appended … It is a rollicking little number.’– Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
