This book is about absent-minded Dr. Kokintz, U.S. atomic scientist, who invented the quadium bomb triggered by his landlady's hairpin. The bomb was captured for Duchess Gloriana XII by her expeditionary force of 20 longbowmen who invaded the world's largest city under their flag where one head says "yes," one "no," and frightened American civil defense workers who thought them men from Mars. This brought instant retaliation from the U.S.A. in the form of a senatorial investigation.

Review: The Mouse That Roared

User Review  - Gail - Goodreads

A fairly average adaptation. It assumes a level of amateurishness in the descriptions and stage directions - perfect for those with low aspirations. Dialogue very stilted and contrived. A bit disappointing that this is the only stage adaptation of an otherwise wonderful satire. Read full review

I read this, when I performed in the play. I was "Jill Snippet" and the story was quite good. Read full review
