The Lovereading4Kids comment

A stunning and thought-provoking picture book with some clever use of cut outs and a flap. Little Mouse looks at the lovely round yellow moon and thinks how much she would love a slice of it for herself. Stepping out the next morning, she finds a perfect yellow slice. Of course, she can’t resist a nibble, and then another nibble. It is delicious. So delicious that very soon it is all gone! Little Mouse feels terrible. Has she really eaten up all the moon? ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

The Mouse Who Ate the Moon by Petr Horacek

From the award-winning picture book maker of Suzy Goose and A New House for Mouse, comes a beautiful peep-through story book about a mouse, the moon and the importance of friendship.

When Little Mouse wakes one morning, she finds her dream has come true. Outside her burrow, a piece of the moon has fallen from the sky and it smells delicious. But what happens once Little Mouse has had a little nibble?

Cut-out holes and shaped pages make this beautiful and heart-warming interactive book one to be shared time and time again.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
