em> occurred to me," he sobbed. "We mice aren't like that."

"Nonsense!" the General said. "It's the unchanging law of nature. We must kill you or you will kill us. And we'll start by killing you!" The General roared louder than all the rest because he was the most frightened.

His hand, huge and terrible, swept swiftly down on poor, wet, weeping George. But the General really didn't know mouse tactics very well, because George was down the leg of the table and halfway to the mousehole before the huge hand struck the table with a noisy bang.

And poor George, frightened half out of his wits, scooted into the mousehole and ran and ran without stopping, through the mouseways as fast as he could, until he reached the train. But, of course, the train was no longer moving. All the telepathic mice had cut every cable, telephone line, power line and telegraph line, had also cut the wires on every plane, tank, vehicle, train and ship.

An amusing bit of silliness. The grandson of an irradiated mouse with increased mental abilities is nagged by his wife into speaking to the janitor about the mousetrap he keeps putting outside their hole. He does, but the janitor's hands are tied without a change of orders from his supervisor. And so on, and so on.
The humans are caricatures, but George is a good character--a henpecked mouse (which would probably be frightening to a mouse.)
