Product Description

Book Description

A small mouse runs after his dad to tell him something important -- across the meadow, along the wall and over the stream, all the way to the barn. Meanwhile, the pictures add another layer as we see the bad cat just waiting to pounce . . . The two mice never see him, but somehow always manage to skip out of the cat's way just at the last moment. Children will love to be one step ahead -- one moment frightened for the safety of our miniature heroes, the next giggling with delight as they escape once again. ROSIE'S WALK meets GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU in a story of genuine warmth and charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale of two mice 'Big' & 'Small'..... 15 May 2008
....and the Bad Cat!

From the back cover:

'...."Wait for me!"

Small has forgotten to tell Big something important, something that just can't wait!
But will he ever catch up with Big?
And what about that bad old cat?.....'

Large paperback with 24 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Beautifully illustrated in pastels throughout, further enhanced by relevant facial expressions!
Easy-to-follow text, emphasised in places for effect..

Example of text:

'The sun was setting when Big said to Small, "I'm off to fetch supper, but just before I go, tell me the special words again."
Small had the special words ready.

(In italics):

"Bolt the door
and lock it tight,
close the curtains
and turn on the light.
If I do, then I will be
safe where the Bad Cat
can't catch me!"

"Good," said Big. "Now, have we forgotten anything?"
Small didn't think so, so Big said goodbye.
And off he went in a hurry.......'

So Small carries out the commands in the poem.....but then he remembers something VERY important indeed.
However, Big is already too far away to hear him tapping at the window.....and so he decides to go and tell Big, despite the warnings re the Bad Cat!
Big is just one step too far away to hear the voice of Small, and although he does hear the odd 'noise', he carries on his mission, unaware of the presence of the Bad Cat at various points throughout!
But....don't worry......all is well that ends well thanks to the now rather VOCIFEROUS Small, and the mice both return home to enjoy their corn supper at the end of the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey, I love you book review 17 Jan 2010
Great story. We had already read it during library group, so knew it well. The story keeps you hanging on right to the end, will he make it or not? When my 3year old daughter finished the final sentence by saying 'hey, i love you', it melts your heart. Every parent should share this story with their child. When i saw the price being asked for it, it was unbelievable, even with p&p. It arrived within a few days,in immaculate condition.
