The proverb in mouse legend ‘Ravens who eat egg-beaters won’t touch mice’ first comes about during disastrous events in the Jones household - involving large amounts of cream, the ladies of Rumbury Town, Archibald the cat (an ex-burglar’s assistant), a foreign professor, mounds of macaroons and meringues, and of course, Mortimer the lovable raven - in Mortimer Says Nothing.
And in Arabel’s Birthday, Arabel’s spoilt cousin takes a horrible revenge on Mortimer for disposing of her Winky Doll.... Two more hilarious stories about Mortimer the roguish raven.

A Great Listen
The adventures of little Arabel Jones and her pet raven Mortimer are always brilliant, engrossing, lovable and wonderfully funny.
I loved the first one as a child and have since gone on to discover a whole world of things Mortimer can chew, sleep in, or use in yet another ingenious way.
The first of these stories is my favourite, the way the characters interact; the way the anticipation is built up is brilliant; all narrated in a clear and lively fashion that is a pleasure to listen to.
A great listen for young and old alike; it could even be enjoyed as a family.
