Five hungry mice spy a box of full of rice. But in order to get to it, they need to cross the kitchen while avoiding the family cat! Atop the table, they find a bag of oranges that they use to distract the cat. Soon they’re filling their bellies with tasty white rice.

This cute retelling of a classic nineteenth century tale is accompanied by adorable illustrations. Kids will cheer for the mice as they reach their prize while narrowly avoiding danger. Five Hungry Mice is a delight to read.
