Twohy could have gone the traditional route of portraying a cat-and-mouse adventure, but using a dog gives the romp relatively more energy and excitement.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

A 2017 Geisel Honor Book

In the vein of Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, and other classic cartoons, Oops, Pounce, Quick, Run! is a hilariously clever alphabet caper, perfect for fans of LMNO Peas and Z Is for Moose.

A little mouse is asleep until a ball suddenly bounces into his home, setting off an epic chase—from A to Z.

This charming picture book is from celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Mike Twohy.

Mike Twohy has been drawing cartoons as far back as he can remember. The author and illustrator of Poindexter Makes a Friend, Outfoxed, and Wake Up, Rupert!, he received his MFA in painting in 1973 from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1980 his first drawing was published in The New Yorker, which has published his cartoons regularly ever since. In a starred review, School Library Journal praised his first book, Pointdexter Makes a Friend, as a “reassuring story [that] will envelop youngers like a warm, cozy blanket.” He lives with his wife, cat, and Newfoundland in Berkeley, California.
