"A clockwork mouse and his child are discarded by children on Christmas Day. Lost and alone, they desperately want to get back home to the toyshop. Russell Hoban's masterpiece The Mouse and his Child is the tale which has inspired a thousand wonderful stories about what really happens in the toy box when we're not looking."
