Sometimes a mouse just has to bust out and do something big. That's why Marvin (also known as "Merciless Marvin the Magnificent") decides it's time to lead Raymond the Rat and Fats the Fuse out of their cozy lair at the back of the movie theater and on to greater glory. Enough of stale popcorn and left over candy! It's time to go in search of...cheese!

But the outside world can be a dangerous place. Is it possible Marvin has bitten off more cheddar than he can chew?

Kids and parents alike will relish the laugh out loud humor of this hilarious crime caper, as narrated by the most delightful tough guy mouse in children¿s literature.

Critic reviews

"This pleasant blend of silliness and drama - bolstered by colorful and distinctive character voices and the clever inclusion of numerous movie references - will keep listeners hooked." ( Publishers Weekly
"Narrator Daniel Bostick gives Marvin a Woody Allen sound with a James Cagney attitude. Bostick and the full cast have the audience cheering for the mice and smiling at the situations in which they find themselves." ( School Library Journal)
