    This 1976 picture book was my introduction to the 14-strong Church Mice series. The town of Wortlethorpe is looking to modernize: tearing down all its heritage buildings in favor of glass-fronted monstrosities. This leaves a troop of rats without a home, but they spy an opportunity when they sneak through Sampson’s catflap in the church door. The wily creatures displace the church mice and even Sampson the ginger wonder cat can’t take back his territory. So the cat and his mice are forced to get creative, and come up with a plan that involves a doll’s house turned into a floating café for rats…I loved the illustrations (the 1970s clothing on the few human characters cracked me up!) and the plot, a good mixture of humor and mild peril. There’s a fair number of words on each page, yet not too many. I can see this being ideal to read aloud with young children before having them take over the reading at age 5 or 6. I look forward to experiencing more of the church mice’s adventures.

    Some people keep rats as pets. Generally they're white rats, or white and tan. Generally they're quite pleasant creatures - even cute and some might possibly find them adorable. Both my children had pet rats at various times.Not me. My mother never would have dreamed about it. Mind you, we only ever had cats. Our one attempt at a dog was a dachshund that nipped our akles mercilessly and didn't last long in our household. So, despite my children having pet rats while living ith me, I never considered them my pets.The rats that invaded the vestry were not like anybody's pets. AND they came en masse!Oakley brings his delightful sense of humour once more in this tale of exodus and heroism (as it were).

    An epic series on friendship from an unlikely pairing. The writing is well done and reading it to your kids and actively exploring the vocabulary is a guaranteed way to expand their understanding of words. I can't recomend this book and the others in the series, more highly.

    This is book 5 in the series and the mice are forced out of their home by some nasty rats...real rats, and Sampson and the mice have to rid themselves and their home of the vermin. The escapades are funny and frantic , worth the read for sure.

    I love the clueless Humphrey and the cranky but kind, ginger cat, Sampson. Their silliness gets them into many outrageous adventures. They are the "Lucy and Ethel" of cats and mice. I have loved this series for years and was thrilled when I was able to share them with my son.

    The Church Mice are evicted from their church by a group of displaced rats, and set about getting their home back!

    Cute story of how mice were forced out of their home by rats and how they with the cat (also forced from its home) work together to get rid of the rats and regain their home.

    I loved the "Church Mice" series when I was really little, and lately I tried to complete my set as an adult only to find that they're out of print and extremely expensive now! How unfortunate!
