Winner of the Scottish Children's Book Awards 2016, Bookbug Readers (3-7) category It's Mouse's first day at Miss Moon's Moonlight School for all the small creatures of the night but she is VERY shy, too shy to even say hello. Luckily, with help from Miss Moon and her new friends Bat, Cat and Owl, a game of hide-and-seek makes Mouse feel right at home.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. There is a shy new student at Miss Moon’s Moonlight School. Owl, Cat and Bat are there, but where is Mouse? Then Miss Moon suggests a fun game of Hide and Seek to help Mouse overcome her shyness. This simple story introduces young children to school and reassures them about shyness. Its charming and child-friendly illustrations make it very accessible. (Ages 2–5)

Synopsis

Mouse's First Night at Moonlight School by Simon Puttock

Winner of the Scottish Children's Book Awards 2016, Bookbug Readers (3-7) category.

Commenting on his win, Simon said: “What does it mean to me to win the award? Apart from it meaning me being enormously (but happily) surprised, it means being able to take huge pleasure in the fact that Ali's and my book is out there, having an unpredictable but entirely satisfactory life of its own. What more could we wish for?”
