The Kitten Who Thought He Was A Mouse
By Miriam Norton
Illustrated by Garth Williams
Pippi loves all things cats. And this sweet book, illustrated by Garth Williams, is as cute as cat books get. If the name Garth Williams sounds familiar, open up your copy of Stuart Little or a Little House book and take a peek at the illustrations. Yep, one and the same.
So the story goes, a kitten is abandoned, and found by the Miggses, a family of mice.
The mouse children, Lester and his two sisters, persuade Mother and Father Miggs to take in the homeless kitten and bring him up as a mouse. Mother and Father consent, and they name the kitten Mickey Miggs.
