Mercy! cried the mouse. It felt like a rather fat mouse, and when Martin took his paw off it, he could see that indeed it was.

Mercy! cried the mouse. Oh, dear! he said. I’m most awfully sorry!

Ronald Gordon King-Smith OBE, Ho. Ed (27 March 1922 – 4 January 2011), was a prolific English writer of children's books, primarily using the pen name Dick King-Smith.

Dick King- Smith's book follows the adventures of Martin, who decides to start keeping petting mice. Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals. But he has to keep this secret from his mother and his siblings, who will be very unimpressed and will likely kill the mice. Martin is incredibly naive and seeks advice from the other farm yard animals on how to feed them but, it turns out, the other animals are equally i I absolutely loved this book. The complete turning on it's head the notion that Martin (a kitten) should be a ruthless mouser. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books.

Martin, a kitten, is branded a wimp' by his siblings for his friendly interest in mice. He loves caring for them and can't understand their desire for freedom. Only when he becomes the pet of a big city apartment dweller does he realize why his pets deserted him. An engaging animal fantasy with plenty of humorous insight into the human condition.

Dick King-Smith served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War, and afterwards spent twenty years as a farmer in Gloucestershire, the county of his birth. Many of his stories are inspired by his farming experiences. He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe), Harry's Mad, The Hodgeheg, Martin's Mice, The Invisible Dog, The Queen's Nose and The Crowstarver. At the British Book Awards in 1991 he was voted Children's Author of the Year.

Crowstarving was the ideal job for Spider - he was on his own - yet never alone, for all around him were animals of one sort or another. Discovered as a foundling in a lambing pen, Spider Sparrow grows up surrounded by animals. From sheep and horses to wild otters and foxes, Spider loves them all, even the crows must scare away the newly sown wheat. Amazingly, every animal who meets Spider implicitly trusts the young boy. Later he taught at a village primary school

Love, love, love this story written by the author of "Babe." I read it to my children when they were 10 and 2, not expecting to laugh and like it as much as I did! I have now bought 3 more copies for my children (now grown and who remember it as one of their favorite stories) and their children.

I purchased this book about 20 years ago for my nephew. It's the story of a cat that didn't want to kill and eat the mice.....he loved them. Not only was it one of his favorite books as a child but mine as well as an adult. Everyone should read this book as it is great for children and adults. I'm reading it again now 20 years later. Love it.

Just what I expected
Meet Martin, his siblings Robin and Lark, his mother Dulcie Maude and later on the in the story, his father Pug. Unlike the rest of his family, Martin does not like killing and eating mice. One day he puts his paw on a pregnant mouse, Drusilla. What does he do? Martin puts her in a bathtub and declares he is going to keep her as a pet! What do mice eat? Enjoy Martin's conversations with the different farm animals as he investigates here and later. What does he do when Drusilla wants a husband?

This is a fun story which teaches kids, in a fun way, the responsibilities of looking after a pet. It is a lot of work as Martin soon finds out. Martin also learns some other lessons of how Drusilla, a wild creature, feels cooped up in a bath! Important to note that the words "wimp", "fool" and "stupid" are used in this story for parents who like to not encourage their children to speak like that. VERY cleverly written story though with many plays on words that probably will go over younger kids heads but older kids and adults will appreciate. How about the fox named Alec Smart?!

Great book from our library that is not only well written but is also delightfully illustrated. Enjoy! Thanks, Liz
