Synopsis

Little Mouse by Alison Murray

Little Mouse can waddle like a penguin, eat like a horse and splash like a whale. So why does her mother call her Little Mouse? Because, sometimes, it's nice to be quiet and cosy, especially when it's time to cuddle with your mum. Alison Murray, working with Scottish Booktrust as their first writer-in-residence, has created this engaging and heart-warming story about the relationship between a little girl and her mother. 'Delightfully illustrated...a warm and wonderful premise.' Junior Magazine 'Engaging and heart-warming. Lovely for story-times and bestime reading.' Peters Gazette
