Synopsis

A Mouse Called Wolf by Dick King-Smith

Whoever heard of a singing mouse? But Wolfgang Amadeus Mouse (named after the beginning of a name found on a scrap of sheet music) has a truly wonderful voice - a voice that thrills old Mrs Honeybee. Soon Mouse is singing daily while the lonely old woman plays the piano. But then - disaster strikes! Can Wolf's voice save the day?
