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
What a delightful book! The illustrations are stunning with each page bright and striking enough to hold both mine and Sophie's attention. Animals are always a winner - we had great fun reading about the different animal characteristics that the main character sees in herself (as well as making some of the animal noises!) We enjoyed this together as a bedtime story as after the fun and frolics, the story gently winds down and ends with a quiet bedtime scene.
