"The story of a little mouse with a big imagination will be special fun for children scared of the dark"
Mouse has been having such fun on his walk that he hasn’t noticed how dark it’s got. But now the sun has set and the shadows are getting longer and darker…
Poor Mouse is scared until meets a friendly firefly who offers to help, ‘I’m Ray and I’ll light your way.’ Even with Ray as company, Mouse keeps seeing frightening shapes in the shadows, but each one turns out to be just another creature wanting to get home and prepared to admit they’re a little bit scared of the dark. As they all follow Ray together, there’s one final surprise that will have young readers gasping (though fortunately Ray is still there to lead the way home).
This funny, reassuring picture book has lots to recommend it and is a bright way to banish night-time fears.
