Mouse is determined to be the first rodent in the whole village to build a flying machine and escape the competition and mundane life of the other rodents. He is accompanied by Golem, a creature he created in a previous experiment who wants nothing more than to sleep and eat food , and Baron Baticus, the aristocratic Baron of the village who is already blessed with the gift of flight. Mouse is on the verge of a breakthrough which makes Golem a little nervous as he will be the one in the pilot seat.
Teaser – Chapter 1: The Sewers Are No Place For A Mouse
“Golem, this is your lunch.” Mouse handed a small paper bag to the large fellow sat beside him.
“Oh raspberries! I do love berries Mouse.” With a swift plop Golem had plucked a berry from the bag and squeezed it through his rather minute mouth. Juice bubbled down his face when the raspberry popped but he didn’t care. Golem was simply happy that he had berries.
Mouse opened his bag to reveal a large green apple that had started to go soft and mushy.
“Well, I’ve got to keep my strength up I suppose…” Mouse shut his eyes and reluctantly chewed on the mushy apple.
Golem was still merrily scoffing his face with berries and humming to himself as he squeezed yet another raspberry into his tiny mouth.
“Once you’ve finished those we need to get back to work. We only have another two carts to fill and we’ll be out of here for the day.”
“But I want to go now. We’ve already been here for hours, I need to sleep… oooo… check this out Mouse.” Golem griped a large elastic band in his hand “Weren’t you always saying we could do with more of these stretchy things?”
“Well done Golem. That’s perfect, I think that will be the last piece we need in order to fix the flying machine.”
