Synopsis

The Mouse Who Sailed the Seas by Amy Sparkes

A mouse he went to sail the seas. He sailed the seas to look for cheese, But all he found were... ...bumblebees! From Roald Dahl Funny Prize-nominated author Amy Sparkes comes an irreverent rhyming tale guaranteed to become a bedtime favourite for kids aged 3 and up. A brave mouse, hungry for adventure and cheese, sets sail in search of a snack. Instead he encounters an array of zany characters and risks mortal danger before finally finding a cheesy land. Join him on his quest! Accompanied by gorgeous, vivid art, The Mouse Who Sailed the Seas is a witty and warm storytime experience from the author of The Goodnight Star and Once Upon a Wish. Look out for Ellie's Magical Wellies. Amy Sparkes is a talented storyteller and is the author of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize-nominated Do Not Enter the Monster Zoo. Amy lives in Devon with her husband, young Sparklings and the Shadow Cat. When she's not off having adventures with her own children she writes stories and hosts writing activities in schools. Nick East has worked as a museum designer for many years but his love of children's books has always been a huge part of his life. He loves using his drawings to communicate his ideas and passions and has always used them to tell stories. He lives near York with his wife and children.
