The Great Christmas Kidnapping Caper

"Merciless Marvin the Magnificent" is back! (Which means, of course, that Fats the Fuse and Raymond the Rat are along for the ride). When Marvin makes his way into Macy's department store, he thinks he's discovered the best deal a mouse could wish for. But no sooner has he gathered his gang, and then gotten them cozily settled into a dollhouse in the toy department, than Macy's Santa goes missing.

    SuseADoodle - "Audiobook Addict!" - Please disregard my "guided" reviews since it appears that a lot of what I wrote has been chopped off.

    "What IS it about mice and rats?"

    Part of me shudders to think of the mice and a rat living together in a doll house in the Macy's department store, taking nighttime nibbles from the cheeses and meats in the deli case. When I lived near downtown Minneapolis, I loved the deli at Dayton's and often bought entrees to take to work for my dinner.

    Another part of me shrugs, lets the thought go and decides to just enjoy the story of how two mice and a rat discover the truth. One wintry evening, Marvin makes his way into a store to get out of the cold. He discovers the deli and a dollhouse. He decides to move in and then goes to find his two friends, Fats and Raymond, to bring them to join him there.

    Fats is entranced by the store Santa. When Santa goes missing, the three friends decide to find him.

    Marvin reminded me of Geronimo Stilton in many ways.

    I give this book a thumbs up and recommend it to anyone who enjoys tales of the tiny triumphing over the big.
