"The Church Mouse" written and illustrated by Graham Oakley. Published by Atheneum, fifth printing, 1985.

"Once there was a church, and in the church there was a mouse whose name was Arthur. Arthur liked it in the church. He was fond of music: he liked sailing his boat and swimming in the font; and best of all, it was safe. The church cat, Sampson had heard so many sermons about the meek being blessed that he treated Arthur just like a brother."

Everything was fine, except that Arthur was sometimes a bit lonely. It was reading (Exodus) in a quiet moment that finally gave Arthur his great idea. He would bring all the mice in town to live in the church. The parson even agreed to feed the mice in return for keeping the church clean.

All went well until the day meek Sampson had a dream that left him a bit less meek then usual. The result was a tragedy that only Sampson, Arthur, and a host of extraordinary mice, helped by a most unexpected event, could handle."

Hard cover children's book in very good condition no rips, tears or writing with a nice dust jacket. The price has been clipped. See the pictures for more detail.
