Little Mouse and the Big Cupcake by Thomas Taylor

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little Mouse is scurrying along one day when he finds something wonderful -- a chocolate chip, raspberry cream cupcake! It looks delicious, but it's much too big for Little Mouse to carry home on his own. So one by one, Little Mouse asks bird, frog, mole and his other friends if they can lift it. They all agree to help, but only after having a taste of the yummy cake. Will there be any left for Little Mouse once his friends have all taken a bite? A story of friendship, sharing and cupcakes with a wonderfully satisfying ending, this book is a joy to read aloud.

About the Author

Thomas Taylor

Thomas Taylor was born in Norwich, but grew up by the sea in Wales. His childhood was mostly about drawing, something he learnt to do in Maths classes.

After art school, Thomas set out to illustrate books, then to write them himself. His first commission was the cover art for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Following this, he pursued a career in picture books, mostly from France where he lived for many years.

Thomas now lives on the south coast of England and has two sons. Sometimes they ask for help with their maths homework, so now they’re learning to draw too.

His debut novels published simultaneously in June 2012 were Haunters and Dan and the Dead.
