Review by

THE STORY OF MISS MOPPET is the cute story of a cat name Miss Moppet who's been played by a mouse. Their antics could only remind you to the famous cartoon series Tom and Jerry.It's a very short story, equip with beautiful water-color illustrations for your enjoyment and to help nurture the children's imagination. Cute plot and good for a quick read.
