Bertie the Cat and the Troublesome Mice is the first book in a series of Bertic Books. The stories are loosely based on Zaidoon's life experience. We follow Bertie's journey of dealing with feelings of doubt and learn that we can achieve anything through hard work, friendship and love. Meet Bertie the cat, also known as Bertram Maximus Frederick, III. Bertie comes from a long line of celebrated mice-catching cats that lived and worked at Mr. Johnson's famous cheese shop in the beautiful town of Appleford. Bertie is having trouble living up to his family legacy because Bertie likes napping all day. While Bertie naps the troublesome mice run all around the cheese shop. Upset with Bertie, Mr. Johnson threatens to replace Bertie with another cat - one who doesn't sleep all day - but also encourages Bertie to try harder. Bertie puts forth more of an effort to stay awake, and both he and Mr. Johnson are happy again. Bertie learns that anything is possible all you have to do is try. Author Bio: Zaidoon A.
