"The creators of A Ride on the Red Mare's Back here take readers on another diverting ride.... This charmer makes a fitting read-aloud for the picture book set or an ideal beginning reader."

From the Publisher's Catalogue:
When a hobo cat tells Tom Mouse tales of travel, he boards a train headed for Chicago and an adventure in a world that's big and scary and exciting and beautiful. From a much-lauded and best-selling author, Tom Mouse is a tale of a mouse, a train, and a woman with a pocketful of surprises.
