Little Mouse's Big Book of Beasts

Author(s): Emily Gravett

Picture Books

Little Mouse has found a new book, and this time it's full of scary creatures. Undaunted, he bravely sets about removing or altering all the scariest bits: cosy mittens to cover the lion's claws, ruby lips to replace the shark's teeth -- and he even pole vaults out of the way of the bear! Full of flaps, jokes and Emily Gravett's trademark wit, with a brilliantly satisfying ending, this is a worthy successor to LITTLE MOUSE'S BIG BOOK OF FEARS. 'There's enough detail for children - and parents - to find something new in this book each time they come to it ...both inventive and amusing.' - Daily Telegraph 'perfect for helping to reassure nervous children, taking a light-hearted and humorous approach to the subjects of fear and anxiety ...Young readers will love following Little Mouse on his journey through the delicately 'nibbled' pages of this beautifully-produced and innovative book ...will charm parents and children alike' -- Booktrust 'GRAVETT'S innovative use of the book as an interactive object as well as a means of telling stories has won her many fans and this latest story - packed with lift-the-flaps, peep holes and various styles of illustration - will prove another winner' -- Daily Mail
