A mouse barks to save her family

Story

Cat and Mouse is the story of a mouse who barks like a dog to save her family from a cat. There are a number of versions of the story. In one it's a baby mouse who believes he is a dog and barks to scare a cat away. In another mother mouse barks to keep her children safe.

Why We Chose It

Cat and Mouse is a great joke story. It was one of the stories included in Suddenly A Star, our Christmas show in 2020. Language Lesson was one of the stories in our original audio stories project. It used the story to make a point about the benefits of learning a second language!
