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!

Reviews

There's enough detail for children - and parents - to find something new in this book each time they come to it . . . both inventive and amusing.
Daily Telegraph||Perfect for helping to reassure nervous children, taking a light-hearted and humorous approach to the subjects of fear and anxiety . . . Young readers will love following Little Mouse on his journey through the delicately 'nibbled' pages of this beautifully-produced and innovative book . . . will charm parents and children alike
Booktrust||Gravett's innovative use of the book as an interactive object as well as a means of telling stories has won her many fans and this latest story - packed with lift-the-flaps, peep holes and various styles of illustration - will prove another winner
