Our son loved Graham Oakley's books so dearly and so did we! The joy of reading them to him seems long ago . I had never seen any of the "Church Mouse" books, and this one took a long time to get to me - must have come from Timbuctu! However, it was worth the wait

Our son loved Graham Oakley's books so dearly and so did we! The joy of reading them to him seems long ago now but we wanted our son's best friend to find that same joy in reading them to his child. So this delightful book was purchased as a gift. I had never seen any of the "Church Mouse" books, and this one took a long time to get to me - must have come from Timbuctu! However, it was worth the wait.

The church cat and the church mice use brains instead of brawn to rout a scurvy gang of displaced rats who have taken over the church. The personalities with which Oakley invests his characters are so memorable. My grandchildren are going to be introduced to Sampson and the church mice now, in their turn.

A wonderful story of good versus evil set in amongst the church mice and their friend the church cat, Sampson. Good wins through; the rats come to a very sticky end (finding a new home in a glue factory) and the church mice and Sampson get their home back. Other titles in the series won the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book award and were nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

As I purchase each book for my grandchildren, I look forward to re-reading them again. My 2 children and I found the Oakley books many years ago in the local public library. How we laughed at the silly plots and wonderful depictions of the character mice and Sampson.
Time passed and the books were forgotten until we had the grandchildren and I began to search for reading materials. It was a joy to find the series again and know how much the grandchildren would enjoy the wonderful illustrations by the gifted artist and author. Using the pictures alone, one can tell the story to the younger children and bypass the text until they are older. The truth is, the older they get, the more they will treasure the books.

The Church Mice books by Graham Oakley were my favorite books when I was very little, and I bought a couple of my old favorite for my mom as a present for Mother's Day. The drawings are just as intricate and beautiful as I remember.

I read these as a kid and now buy them for my niece who loves cats. They are as good now as 30 years ago. Just wish they would be republished as it is hard to find used copies for a reasonable price. Samson the cat and his friends the church mice have great adventures and the illustrations are wonderful.

I loved this book for my children(who all loved it), have now bought this one for my granddaughter. The beautiful and detailed illustrations in the book mean that this book will be looked at again and again and every time something new will be found.

graham oakley's church mice books are super fun. the facial expressions on the mice and sampson, the church cat, are hilarious. the plot in the church mice adrift is very funny. the story is also told in the detailed illustrations. some of the humor is lost on my kids.
Appreciate the art as well as the story. I own all in the series, and well worth keeping for generations.
