Worshipped by the fearsome rats, Jupiter's dreams could well come true. Can the mice ever survive against such evil? Or have they lost the comfortable world they once knew for ever ...This stunning trilogy commences with The Dark Portal, in which Albert Mouse squeezes through the Grill and disappears.
