About the Author

M. N. Tahl has been a cheese-lover for as long as she can remember. She has fond memories of her grandma teaching her how to obtain extra portions of cheese with surreptitious cunning. One of Tahl's favorite vacations was spent in Italy, waiting for the local "mozzarella man" to bring his cheese in a bucket. This delicacy could only be eaten while standing in the sea, due to extreme juiciness. Tahl lives in the perfectly situated village of Cheddar, England.

Mark Chambers is an author and illustrator of children's picture books and young fiction. In 2017, Mark was shortlisted for the AOI World Illustration Awards with his piece "We Will Remember" and in 2013 for The Roald Dahl Funny Prize. In the same year, he went on to win the Sheffield Children's Picture Book Award and was also highly commended in the young fiction category.

Praise For…

True to his calling, Supermouse is prepared to save the world, but he might need help with the Volcano of Doom.

Supermouse is swamped with day-to-day rescues in the city of Mouseopolis, so when a nearby volcano threatens to erupt, he holds auditions for the League of Remarkable Rodents. “But were these rodents all that remarkable?” It turns out that Inflato-Girl, Daring Digger, and Speed Eater have just the right combination of skills to help Supermouse save Mouseopolis when a “molten mass of melted cheese…ooze[es] toward the city.” Brightly colored illustrations packed with fun details are worth poring over, especially since some of the book’s flaps easily blend into the larger illustrations. These sturdy flaps, which will likely withstand multiple readings, often create multipage booklets, some with cutouts, some that creatively extend the page beyond the book’s edges—all are critical to the storytelling. Wordplay shines. There’s alliteration aplenty, from the names of the main characters—Peter Parmesan (Supermouse’s true identity) and villains Mischief McMouse and Sally the Sly—to descriptions like “treacherous tumbles” and “perilous pitfalls” as well as delightful tongue-twisting strings such as “He fought fearlessly to fend off the flow of the fiery fondue.” Both adults and children will giggle at the puns—workplace signs (“BRIE SAFE BRIE SEEN,” “DANGER HAZARDOUS TASTE”), a classified ad for “Rock band FLEETWOOD MAC ’n’ CHEESE”—and spectator comments like “We’re all fondoomed!” There is also a smattering of onomatopoeia for storytime fun.

A creatively told story sure to tickle readers. (Picture book. 4-8) --Kirkus Reviews
