The Little Mouse's Tail
by Ardi Alemi, Charlotte & Russell Wanhill
This is such a glorious book! The artwork is superb, colourful and simple. As is the storytelling.
I have a 4-year old grandchild who sounds exactly like the little mouse, and would love this story. But the age range extends far beyond four years. (I read it to my 36-year old daughter!)
And the little mouse has beautiful manners – that's important in this day and age where they seem to be lacking in some children.
The pages each have a rhythm that carries this simple but valid message along.
There’s a bookread video of the story available too, in which children can join right in along with the narrator. Each character has its own voice, it's mesmerising.
The moral is simple: When something does not happen the way you want it to...
I am running out of words to describe this book. It is simply delightful.
