Children will follow the tale with excitement and relief" -- Kate Kellaway Observer "Children will delight in the clever ways Scruffy Bear comes up with ideas to disguise the six white mice ... Verbal play and storytelling will captivate and enchant young readers" South Wales Evening Post "Amusing picture book with really cute illustrations" -- Debbie Williams Primary Times "With his wonderful illustrations and charming characters, Chris Wormell honors everyone who has had to be brave and quick thinking under difficult circumstances" Through the Looking Glass
