Timothy Knapman’s bio

Can't Catch Me!

author: Timothy Knapman
illustrator: Simona Ciraolo

Im the fastest mouse in the world! Jake claims. Im like the wind. I am faster than lightning! But will speed alone keep boastful Jake from being caught by a cat, a fox, a wolf, or a bear? Cant catch me! he shouts. Well, clever Old Tom Cat will just have to see about that. . . . Expressive and energetic illustrations pair with a fun cumulative text in a mischievous story that begs to be read aloud.

A cheeky tale follows a speedy mouse as he taunts a progression of hungry animals with a wickedly funny final twist.
