My mother, a fifth grade teacher, recommended I read this book. It was a very cute, sweet read about a cat who fails at being a mouser -- sort of. It's adorable and sweet. ( )

Fantastic book! Comical, interesting, paced just right. Martin is a well-meaning cat who just wants to keep pet mice, until he learns a lesson about freedom. ( )

Have you ever heard of a cat that doesn’t like to eat mice? Well, I have. Hi my name is Martin and I don’t like to eat mice. It all started when I caught a mouse called Drusilla and I ended up keeping her as a pet in the house bathtub, but then she has babies. When the babies got older they got tiered of staying in a bathtub so Martin let them free. If you want to find out if a cat will catch the babies and eat them you have to read Martins mice by: Dick-King Smith. ( )

This would be a great book for reading aloud to kids--there's a lot of witty bits to keep adults chuckling to themselves. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 067989098X, Paperback)

"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, King-Smith's story has humor and a fast pace which will appeal to younger readers."--School Library Journal (starred review)
