Poor old Mossop. All he wants to do is curl up and sleep. But when Farmer Rafferty finds mice in the corn bin, it looks as though Mossop will be thrown off the farm. He has just one chance -- he must catch twenty-six mice by sunset. Luckily Albertine the goose has a plan!

Scoular Anderson lives in a house in Argyll, Scotland. He spends lots of time looking at the passing ships rather than getting on with his work. The cat and the dog often come to sleep in his studio because it's the warmest room in the house. Scoular likes writing books which are funny or make the reader learn something. He has written and illustrated about 80 books. He likes drawing dogs and castles but is not too keen on bicycles because they stick out at strange angles.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-- Harry's hiccups cause all kinds of problems in his first-grade classroom, and finally, indirectly, cause the fire alarm to go off. The natural humor of hiccups in school is pushed to extremes and falls flat, while the fact that Harry's teacher thinks he is hiccupping on purpose is troubling. As part of a series designed to attract "children who are just beginning to enjoy reading," the text is minimal--just two to six sentences per page. There are several cartoonlike drawings on each page; they are descriptive, but hardly distinguished. It's a mediocre effort with forced humor and slight plot development that most children won't find particularly funny. Stick with the many other better written school stories. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
