A small mouse runs after his dad to tell him something important -- across the meadow, along the wall and over the stream, all the way to the barn. Meanwhile, the pictures add another layer as we see the bad cat just waiting to pounce . . . The two mice never see him, but somehow always manage to skip out of the cat's way just at the last moment. Children will love to be one step ahead -- one moment frightened for the safety of our miniature heroes, the next giggling with delight as they escape once again. ROSIE'S WALK meets GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU in a story of genuine warmth and charm.
