"Big Jake! Who is Big Jake and why would Melissa want to capture him in a cage?"
Why, didn't you know? Big Jake has huge yellow teeth, rotten breath, and hates little mice because they steal his food.
Melissa is a little mouse, but she is a brave little mouse. And so the story begins as she gathers her friends together to plan how to drive Big Jake out of town.
Her ventures lead her to encounter a host of problems, and when the big chase is finally upon her, she can smell Big Jake's rotten breath, and is in a whisker of feeling his huge yellow teeth sinking into her neck, but brave mice do not give up easily. Or do they?
