Friends make everything better. Oliver the Cat doesn't have a friend. He wishes he had someone he could invite to tea.
Sometimes good things are really close by and we just can't see them. In Oliver's case in his very own living room under the couch is a lively little mouse named Philbert. Philbert is trying really hard to send Oliver a letter so the two can have teaw. Things just keep going wrong and the message just doesn't seem to quite get there.
This is a delightful giggle of a story about the power of friendship and the amazing moments that happen when two beings share something they love - even when they are as different as a cat and a mouse.
