Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer were a very notorious couple of cats.
As knockabout clowns, quick-change comedians, tight-rope walkers and acrobats.
And when you heard a dining-room smash
Then the family would say: 'It's that horrible cat!
It was Mungojerrie! and Rumpelteazer!' - And there's nothing at all to be done about that!
Join the cat-burglars Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer in the fifth picture-book pairing from Arthur Robins and T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's cats, as they steal meat from the oven and pearls from the drawers.
