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

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
Emily Gravett is as inventive and dazzling as ever.
The Guardian
Collage-style spreads with die-cut flaps, crafty instructions (including how to make Origami mice and sharks!), and cautionary poems make for a busy but brilliant Big Book of Beasts.
