If you were a mouse looking for colour and adventure,
where would you look?
'In the Bestish Lair, of course,' says Cousin Ruthie. 'The Bestish has the most enormous imagination in the world. Every night when he goes to sleep, he dreams. And every day, he makes exactly the colours and shapes he dreams about, and anyone can take them.'
But the Bestish Lair isn't what it seems. And on the way there, Frankel, Cousin Ruthie and the others find some surprises.
A very small visitor and a most unexpected hero!
Frankel and friends return in this funny, captivating story about five mice, one Bestish, and a whole cupboardful of adventure. Perfect for reading aloud.
Note: adults who have thoughts of going to find the Bestish had better be warned that Cousin Ruthie has a very lively imagination and quite often just makes things up!
