Horacek - the master illustrator from Prague whose use of bold colour and cut-outs makes him a cut above... Toddlers will scratch their heads furiously trying to work out the moral of the fourth story in this excellent series. Their parents will just enjoy lifting the flaps * The Times, Children's Book of the Week * This is a gorgeous picture book with a simple message about keeping safe. The images in the woods are evocative and Little Mouse's energy and enthusiasm shine out - but is she being a little careless about her wellbeing? Lots to discuss with younger children. * School Zone *
