August 2013 Book of the Month The award-winning Little Mouse is back for another fabulous adventure…This time Little Mouse is looking at some very scary creatures indeed. In her brilliant pages which feature all kinds of add-ons and cut-throughs, Little Mouse takes a dangerously close look at a Lion, a Shark, a Wasp, and many more all of whom pose a very great threat to the Little Mouse. Emily Gravett is a dazzling as ever in her use of every page.

Synopsis

Little Mouse's Big Book of Beasts by Emily Gravett

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!

Reviews

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 Parents in Touch Filled with fun activities, innovative lift-the-flaps and Emily Gravett's trademark wit and humorous observations, this is the perfect book for sharing aloud with children who need a little reassurance. Lilinha Angel's World This gem of a book is utterly mad and can be used as a great way to defuse anxieties. Daily Mail Emily Gravett is as inventive and dazzling as ever. The Guardian Gravett's writing and illustrations are always clever and funny, and in Little Mouse she has an accessible anti-hero. Inis Magazine The pleasures of Gravett's books lie in their muted, intricate cadences and in her distinctive visual style. The Telegraph Characterised by Gravett's trademark wit, humour and imagination, this is a special book that will charm parents and children alike: the amazing final page in which the mouse itself is transformed into a fearsome beast offers an especially entertaining final twist.

About the Author

Emily Gravett

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors.

Emily Gravett has a rare talent indeed for creating exceptional books for children. The winner of two Kate Greenaway Awards, her skill and wit are second to none as she pushes the boundaries and wrings maximum fun and detail from every page. Emily first sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves, in 2005, which has been followed by such brilliant modern classics as Meerkat Mail, Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears, Monkey and Me and The Odd Egg and the fabulous Bear and Hare series for younger readers, as well as the beautiful Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last - and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily lives in Brighton with her family.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Prize-winning illustrator Emily Gravett’s distinctive illustrations are always full of wit bringing the unexpected into stories and injecting them all with delightful humour. There’s magic in Spells as a frog turns himself into a handsome prince – well, almost!, excellent advice for rabbits on how to spot the danger of wolves in Wolves, lots of useful tips on how to be braver than you feel in Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, a thoughtful exploration of how home often turns out to be best despite feelings of wanderlust in Meerkat Mail, a celebration of exuberant movement in Monkey and Me and a fresh and delightful look at Dogs.
