MOUSE-FROG WEDDING
SOCIAL EVENT OF THE YEAR

By Thea Stilton

NEW MOUSE CITY—Around this time last year, their romance made big news when Clint Froggy, the last of the swashbuckling movie stars, proposed to rock singer Miss Glenda Mousey.

Today, the wedding bells rang out for the famous pair. All the celebrities of Mouse Island were there, plus many more from around the world—including Prince Rarebit and Princess Camemberta. Here’s an exclusive interview you won’t read anywhere but in The Rodent’s Gazette.

Thea Stilton: Ms. Mousey, is it true that he came to your door with a sword and pistol by his side?

Mousey: Uh-huh! He looked just like a pirate!

Froggy: Excuse me, but I don’t want your readers to get the wrong idea. It wasn’t a real sword and pistol. They were just some things from the studio prop department.

Thea Stilton: Did he bend down on one knee?

Mousey: Not exactly. He picked me up and put me on his knee! And he didn’t just come up to my door—he rode up! On a horse!

Froggy: Yep, my old pinto pony, Lily Pad. Rode him right through the streets.

Thea: Cool! What next for Mr. and Mrs. Froggy?

Froggy: First, a nice quiet honeymoon down by the brook…

Mousey: And then I’m making him put the horse out to pasture and buy us a nice new SUV.

CHEESE WAR ON RATISON AVENUE

By Teddy von Muffler

NEW MOUSE CITY — Who makes the world’s smelliest cheese? That’s the question that led to one of the most fiercely fought legal battles in New Mouse City history.

It all began when Mama Mouse’s Homemade Cheeses, a little store on Ratison Avenue, put a sign in the window that said, “Home of the World’s Smelliest Cheese.”

The sign drew lots of business, so the Gourmet Cheese Shoppe across the street fought back with a sign in their window reading, “The World’s REALLY Smelliest Cheese! All Others Are Imitations!”

Mama Mouse sued, and the case went to court. A consumer researcher was called in as an expert witness. He testified that, in a sniff test, 83% of rodents said Mama Mouse’s cheese was smellier.

That should have ended it, but the Gourmet Cheese Shoppe decided to make their cheese smellier. They put a new sign in the window reading, “New Improved! Our Cheese Is Now the World’s Smelliest!”

So Mama Mouse made her cheese smellier. And so it went, back and forth, for three months, until drivers in passing cars were rolling up their windows and everyone on the sidewalk, even the pigeons, were holding their noses.

So, Mama Mouse’s and the Gourmet Cheese Shoppe declared a truce. While Mama’s still advertises “The World’s Smelliest Cheese,” the Gourmet Cheese Shoppe now advertises “The World’s Runniest Cheese.”

And once again business is booming on Ratison Avenue.
