Jackson Winstanley Sweettooth (or Jack for short) is a mouse who lives with Matthew and the rest of the Bailey family. He gets the blame for a lot of things - Mrs Bailey thinks he's swallowed her ruby and nibbled at Shani's birthday cake. And Jack's biggest enemy is Beauregard Battersby-Bunge, the pesky ginger cat from next door. But everything gets better when another mouse, Blossom, comes to stay with the Baileys - soon Blossom and Jack are the best of friends!
"It's a delight to see the reissue of [this book] from acclaimed author Malorie Blackman . . . Mishaps and misunderstandings make for gentle domestic comedy, while the mouse's anxieties form a useful prompt for encouraging children to talk about their own fears and concerns"
The enduring appeal of the Noughts and Crosses series.
