When The Cat’s Away, a picture book for young children, is set in Paris. A family of mice move into their new home beneath the Café des Chats. Gussie and her twin brother, Pierre, are keen to explore their new surroundings. It is not long before Pierre’s nose for adventure puts his life at risk and takes them far away. It takes some luck and all of Gussie’s bravery and ingenuity to stage his rescue. Their triumphant journey through the streets of Paris back to their home almost comes unstuck. And then at the very last minute they realise they have another problem – the resident cat is not quite as far away as they had hoped!
