Review

Full of flaps, jokes and Emily Gravett's trademark wit, with a brilliantly satisfying ending, this is a worthy successor to Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears (Parents in Touch)

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. (Lilinha Angel’s World)

This gem of a book is utterly mad and can be used as a great way to defuse anxieties. (Daily Mail)

Emily Gravett is as inventive and dazzling as ever. (The Guardian)

Gravett's writing and illustrations are always clever and funny, and in Little Mouse she has an accessible anti-hero. (Inis Magazine)

The pleasures of Gravett's books lie in their muted, intricate cadences and in her distinctive visual style. (The Telegraph)

Characterised by Gravett's trademark wit, humour and imagination, this is a special book that will charm parents and children alike: the amazing final page in which the mouse itself is transformed into a fearsome beast offers an especially entertaining final twist. (Booktrust Online)

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)

Botboy likes the interactive pages, swatting the wasps with the newspaper and lifting the flaps. (Talk About Cheesecake)

Each page in this wonderful picture book is full of humour, invention and vibrant visual drama. (Carousel)

...like its predecessor [it] is perfect for helping to reassure nervous children, taking a light-hearted and humorous approach to the subjects of fear and anxiety. (Booktrust)

Like Wolves, this book takes a sideways approach to real anxieties, the pages devoted to those particularly predators of mice, the owl and snake, do have a disturbing aspect. The final pages, collecting all the bits that mouse has taken from each of the previous pages, expresses the triumph of little over large, of imagination over fear. (Books for Keeps)

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. (kimharte.org)

Emily Gravett larks around with the idea of a bestiary, accessorising her "weak" mouse with claws and fangs (The Daily Telegraph)

This book is completely unpredictable from an artist who gets wilder every time, yet still gets away with it through the force of her talent (The Independent)
