Charlie Muffin knows mice. Long-haired mice. Curly-coated mice. Slate-blue mice. As a mouse farmer, he's bred them all. But Merry--a rather attractive new customer of Muffin's High-Class Mice--wants a mouse of a different color: a green mouse. To Charlie, a green mouse is like a flying pig -- impossible!

But against the odds, Charlie decides to go for the green. After all, if he succeeds, he'll be in the Guinness Book of World Records. And surely he'd win the highest prize at the Grand Mouse Championship Show. But most important, he'd make Merry happy. And if Merry's happy, Charlie's merry. It all sounds perfect to Charlie.

Now, if only he can work a mouse miracle...

Dick King-Smith's charm and wit abound in this affectionate, offbeat tale about a man, a mouse, and a dream.

But there's little drama to fuel it other than the Grand Mouse Championship Show (which Charlie's pea-green mouse wins handily) and a subsequent attempted theft of the tiny champion, and the ending trails off in an anticlimax.
