KIRKUS REVIEW

Friso Henstra is back with a chase in the wordless Monty Python/Yellow Submarine mode. It's set off when a mouse in sneakers challenges a cat, then disappears down a hole--but not until it has lured the cat past a resting dog. The dog pursues the cat straight into a man at table and a woman serving him dessert, and they are carried along (her head now covered with spilled frosting) as they all collide with a top on a motorcycle and then a circus train. The motorcycle, on cue, crashes into the lion's cage. They all end up in a heap as the mouse pops out of a hole to renew the challenge. Shopworn frenzy.
