For ages 3-5

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!

Full of flaps, jokes and Emily Gravett’s trademark wit, with a brilliantly satisfying ending, this is a worthy successor to Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears.

In the media

Emily Gravett larks around with the idea of a bestiary, accessorising her "weak" mouse with claws and fangs
The Daily Telegraph
Each page in this wonderful picture book is full of humour, invention and vibrant visual drama.
Gravett's writing and illustrations are always clever and funny, and in Little Mouse she has an accessible anti-hero. Little Mouse makes it ok for children to be afraid or worried; children can be comforted by him and his worries.
