A cautionary tale for mice reminiscent of Carroll’s Jabberwocky! Out in the open, in the clear, Where any wisenmouse would fear, Jam licks his paw, he grooms an ear, And never hears approaching hisssss . . . What will happen to the brave mouse Jam when he breaks the rules and goes for a moonlit adventure against the advice of the elder mice? Award-winning illustrator Barry Moser has created a dark and vivid mouse world to complement this cautionary tale full of clever nonsense words and rhyming prose that will keep kids on the edge of their seats.
