Synopsis

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, Little Mouse's Big Book of Beasts is a worthy companion to the multi-award-winning Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears.

In the media

Emily Gravett is as inventive and dazzling as ever.
The Guardian
The pleasures of Gravett's books lie in their muted, intricate cadences and in her distinctive visual style.
The Telegraph
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.
