The Kitten Who Thought He Was A Mouse Author:Miriam Norton One fine summer day, the Miggses, a family of field mice, find something strange in their nest. This "small gray and black bundle of fur and ears and legs" turns out to be a newborn kitten. The children beg their parents to adopt the homeless kitten and raise him as one of their own. So begins the charming tale of Mickey, the kitten who thought ... more »he was a mouse.

Miriam Norton's delightful story is brought to life by the incomparable paintings of the renowned Garth Williams, who imbues the animals with almost human characteristics and with marvelously varied and lively facial expressions.
