Can't Catch Me!

(3) PS Illustrated by Simona Ciraolo. In this clever cumulative story reminiscent of "The Gingerbread Man," swift mouse Jake outruns the clutches of Old Tom Cat, plus a fox, wolf, and bear. "'Can't catch me!' sings Jake. 'I'm the fastest mouse in the world!'" That is, until the boastful rodent is finally outwitted (and gobbled up) by Old Tom Cat. Energetic pencil and watercolor illustrations capture the animals' spry movements.
