Synopsis

Little Mouse by Riikka Jantti

Little Mouse has lots to do ...and quite a lot of things he'd rather not do! A day in the life of a toddler is a busy one - as all parents know - and Little Mouse's day is no exception. Between getting dressed, going to childcare, eating dinner, and making time for splashing in puddles, Little Mouse has a lot to do ...and a lot to say 'no' to! This warm and humorous picture book from well-loved Finnish author/illustrator Riikka Jantti introduces Little Mouse - a small kid with a big personality - who parents and childen will relate to instantly. In Little Mouse, everyday life combines with the wonder of early childhood to produce a captivating story that's sure to become a read-aloud favourite.

Reviews

'Charming ... Scandi sublime.'

'English readers will see something of Beatrix Potter's poetry and precision in the Helsinki-based illustrator and author's retro ink and watercolour illustrations. Pitched at children aged up to four, Little Mouse will also delight parents, taking them back to when every day was an adventure.'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
