When the Mad Fisher and I visited Cornwall last spring, we spent a night in the quaint fishing town of Mousehole (pronounced "Mowzel"). We saw a copy of The Mousehole Cat in our hotel and quickly flipped through it. I liked what I saw briefly and later surprised the Mad Fisher with our very own copy, which we read together one night before going on Christmas holiday.

This is the story of one courageous cat and her fisherman, who save the town from starvation by braving fierce storms to bring in a catch, told, of course, from the cat's perspective. It's a charming story, and the illustrations are gorgeous beyond description.
