Based on a little-known Mother Goose poem, this bilingual picture book tells the tale of a cat and a mouse who played happily together until the cat bit off the mouse s tail. Giving a new spin on the original, this version becomes a cumulative story that helps the mouse get his tail back. Told in both English and Chinese, and filled with exciting and vivid illustrations, it also includes an audio CD of the story.
