A charming story where Morris the cat discovers the magic of reading.
Morris the cat knows that no one can resist a good story, not even a mouse. Tired of chasing mice all day long, he comes up with a clever plan to make the mice come to him. All he needs is the perfect story to lure them in. But Morris can’t seem to find the right one. He either puts the mice to sleep, collapses in a fit of giggles, or ruins his appetite. Ultimately, in the search for the perfect story, Morris’s attitude toward mice changes. He learns that reading has power. Just like magic. Illustrated in color throughout
