Product Details


The handsome pencil and watercolor illustrations (combined digitally) are clean and crisp, with golden little Clemmie contrasting against the white space and gentle background hues. The cute factor of the mouse is ramped up by its increasingly amusing disguises, but it’s Clemmie who steals the show, whether proudly smiling while declaring her superior mousing skills or rearing back in surprise at the discovered mouse. Kids and adults alike will find Clemmie a charmer.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred)

British author-illustrator Leathers’ overconfident kitten will easily win hearts. Storytimers and lap-sit listeners will enjoy spotting the sneaky, smart mouse, who’s always just ahead of the appealing feline heroine, disguising each physical feature as the kitten chases the look-alike.
—Kirkus Reviews

Fun for reading aloud, this picture book gives children the pleasure of keeping a secret from the main character or calling it out to her.

A sweetly funny tale for storytimes or one-on-one read-alouds.
—School Library Journal
