In Mouse Went Out to Get a Snack, Jim McFarland's entertaining illustrations depict a scrawny little mouse with big ambitions. And Lyn Rossiter McFarland's terse text takes the little critter out of the safety of his mousehole as he searches for a snack.

He climbs a table, and finds a feast ... 'Yum. Flex those muscles. Crack those knuckles.' The raid is on, and it's time to count along as the mouse lists everything he's toppling into this monster snack. From '1 piece of cheese' to '10 pieces of chocolate cake', kids will delight in all the tasty treats tumbling off the table and onto the tray below ... and they'll roar with laughter at what happens when mouse meets cat.

The McFarlands combine a delightful mouse eye view - of his world and the giant feline who dominates it - with a simple counting exercise in this sweet, chaotic story.
