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

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.
Inis Magazine
Emily Gravett larks around with the idea of a bestiary, accessorising her "weak" mouse with claws and fangs
The Daily Telegraph
Filled with fun activities, innovative lift-the-flaps and Emily Gravett's trademark wit and humorous observations, this is the perfect book for sharing aloud with children who need a little reassurance.
