Minette is a mouse in The Royal Courts of Justice whose forebears remember seeing Charles Dickens in the nineteenth century attending at Court One. Minette watches, sees, hears and relates all that goes on in the family courts, with the awful tragedies of people's lives and issues, especially affecting children. Minette is downcast by the accumulation of people's problems often caused by themselves and indeed with the behaviours of some of Her Majesty's Judges, but she has camaraderie with the other mice in the Royal Courts of Justice, as well as the mice at the Old Bailey and the mice of the Supreme Court, where they especially gather for receptions with many leftovers scattered on the carpets, taking, as they do, the number 19 bus along The Strand. But not all is sad, for Minette knows that some of Her Majesty's Judges are, nevertheless, aware and kindly regarding the very serious responsibilities that they own.
