One of our Books of the Year 2014 A stunning and thought-provoking picture book with some clever use of cut outs and a flap. Little Mouse looks at the lovely round yellow moon and thinks how much she would love a slice of it for herself. Stepping out the next morning, she finds a perfect yellow slice. Of course, she can’t resist a nibble, and then another nibble. It is delicious. So delicious that very soon it is all gone! Little Mouse feels terrible. Has she really eaten up all the moon?
This is a beautiful peep-through story book about a mouse, a tasty piece of the moon and the importance of friendship. When Little Mouse wakes one morning, she finds her dream has come true. Outside her burrow, a piece of the moon has fallen from the sky and it smells delicious. But what happens once Little Mouse has had a little nibble? Peep through the cut-out holes in this beautiful and heart-warming tale from the award-winning and much-loved Petr Horacek.
It features the same mouse character as the prize-winning A New House for Mouse. Cut-out holes and shaped pages make this the perfect interactive novelty book to be shared time and time again.
