A five-book series chronicling the humorous adventures of Grand Fenwick — the tiny, backwards country that declared war on the United States, beat everyone in the Space Race to the moon, wreaked havoc on the stock market, and solved the world's oil crisis. Plus a prequel about the country's humble origins.
The Mouse That Roared
In Leonard Wibberley's classic political satire, a tiny backwards country decides the only way to survive a sudden economic downturn is to declare war on the United States and lose to get foreign aid – but things don't go according to plan.
The Mouse That Roared was made into a successful feature film in 1959 starring Peter Sellers.
The Mouse On The Moon
A wonderfully funny sequel to The Mouse That Roared
The Duchy of Grand Fenwick, the world's smallest country, whose army of 20 longbow men defeated the United States in The Mouse that Roared is back again.
While the Americans and the Soviets are racing to claim the moon, Grand Fenwick's famous physicist makes the perfect rocket fuel from the zingiest wine in the world and the SPACE RACE IS ON!
The Mouse On Wall Street
Gloriana XII—The Original Wolf of Wall Street.
Grand Fenwick is at it again, this time upsetting the world's economy.
The tiny country's secret weapon this time is its Grand Pinot chewing gum. When sales boom during an anti-smoking campaign, Grand Fenwick's investment is suddenly worth millions.
In an attempt to rid Grand Fenwick of its crippling budget surplus, Duchess Gloriana XII decides the stock market is the perfect place to lose it all. Instead, she makes millions more and ends up wreaking havoc on the world economy.
Never has "the money game" been more deliciously exposed than in this ingenious satire.
The Mouse That Saved The West
The fourth book in the bestselling The Mouse That Roared series brings the Duchy of Grand Fenwick's most extraordinary achievement yet—the defeat of OPEC and the happy solution to the world's oil crisis, which came about through the best that international diplomacy has to offer: duplicity and dumb luck.
It all began when the Count of Mountjoy, the prime minister of Grand Fenwick, was unable to get a hot bath because of the fuel shortage…
Beware Of The Mouse (A Mouse That Roared Prequel)
A prequel to the bestselling classic The Mouse That Roared.
Set in the year 1450, the tiny Duchy of Grand Fenwick, ruled by the benevolent and noble Sir Roger and armed with its army of expert longbowmen, had existed peacefully without threat of invasion for decades.
But when a rascally Irish Knight stumbles across its borders with news that the French were set to attack and that they had a new weapon of mass destruction called "the cannon," the Irishman and Sir Roger must find a way to drop their differences and fight together, a feat made even more difficult when Sir Roger's daughter, the Lady Matilda becomes unduly enamored in the Irish newcomer.
