Chapter 1

George O'Riley was small and fast,

He was the leading spy at last,

He is on a flag that sits on a mast,

His days as a normal wood-mouse are in the past.

The men came in the middle of the night,

Their country winning the war in sight,

Don't like the look of them George said in dim light,

Looks like Germans George said quite.

George and Emily followed the men's trail,

Unconvinced they were here to bail,

To the sculptor they sent mail,

Aye, Aye, boat about to sail.

The sculptor had great power,

He lived beside an old clock tower,

He was known not to cower,

Not even to men so sour.

We knew their plan,

So first to offer was old Dan,

But another said I can,

And Emily offered herself to the man.

The sculptor saw the love in this,

And I offered one last kiss,

The men came and left in bliss,

Not knowing their plan would go amiss.

There she stood all in stone,

In that German car all alone,

The engine ran that made a drone,

And I was as stiff as a bone.

The car down the road came then,

First to spot it was hairy Ken,

We came out of the den,

And flipped the car, only took mice ten.

We got her down,

And back into town,

Our paws were brown,

But we had the crown.

We had stopped the fall of the spies,

The sculptor told no more lies,

Emily stands in the skies,

And my love for her never dies.

Forever-more they looked for him,

George O'Riley and his kin,

Every motorway, every bin,

For all the coins they should have a tin.





The Sculptor: The Sculptor has the power to turn living things to stone.

The Germans: The Germans were on a mission to capture the leader of the London mice spies (George O'Riley) because it was the mice spies that brought the information about when and where the German bombings were going to happen.

Emily: Emily is second in command (after George O'Riley).

'For all the coins they should have a tin.': A paraphrase of the phrase 'if I had a coin for every time that happened'
