Little Mouse's, Emily Gravett's [scored out] big book of beasts

Gravett, Emily, author, artist

Little Mouse has found a new book, and this time it's full of scary creatures. Undaunted, he bravely sets about removing or altering all the scariest bits: cosy mittens to cover the lion's claws, ruby lips to replace the shark's teeth - and he even pole vaults out of the way of the bear!
