A piece of Swiss cheese named Louise and her exciting kitchen caper. It`s the middle of the night. The floor creaks downstairs. Was that the sound of the refrigerator door opening? What really goes on in the kitchen when the lights go out? The answer: danger, adventure and the stuff of legends. This is the story of Cheese Louise and her friends, Seymour, the grouchy carrot, and the protective Pop Corn. It`s also the story of Kit, the most dangerous cat ever to prowl a linoleum floor.
