Marcello Moustriani is a little mouse who lives in a movie theater. While other mice gather cheese at the Parmesan factory, Marcello dreams of making his own film someday. But how can he do it? There’s no camera, no crew, and every day is just work, work, work at the factory. To top it all off, Ravioli, the theater cat, lurks around every corner, ready to pounce on his cast and crew. But Marcello just won’t give up! Vibrant illustrations, an unusual setting, a clever storyline make this a fun and uplifting tale.
