A little mouse that lives on a fishing boat is minding his own business, nibbling fishing nets and scampering about, when he suddenly gets caught up in a big adventure! Sailing out to sea with a strange man on board the mouse and crew are soon caught in a huge and terrifying storm - who can help them now? Just as all seems lost the stranger aboard comes to the rescue, calming the storm. As the relieved mouse settles down to sleep he hopes that this man will sail with them again. A charming slant on the famous Bible story of Jesus and the storm told and illustrated by two best-loved children's picture book creators.
