Hurrah for the Baker’s Cat – and the mice that help him! The poor old baker’s cat is very badly treated by the mean and nasty baker and his even meaner and nastier wife! They work him to the bone doing all the chores and specifically keeping the mice out. The cat has had enough! But then the mice come up with a very clever plan. Soon the mice and the cat outwit the baker and his wife. There are new owners in the shop – the cakes and buns have never been more delicious! Posy Simmonds has created a bakery stuffed full of treats for cats, mice and readers to enjoy.

Synopsis

Baker Cat by Posy Simmonds

All day long the baker's cat toils in the bakery and all night he is expected to catch the mice that run riot in the storeroom. If he doesn't catch any mice, the beastly baker tells him, he won't get any food. Too exhausted to chase after the cheeky rodents, the baker's cat becomes thin and sad and weepy, until the mice take pity on him and together they concoct a clever plan...
