About this deal

Emily Gravett is twice winner of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal and the Nestlé Children's Book Prize Bronze Award for Wolves and Little Mouse's Big Book Of Fears. Each book is unique and different from the last – and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Her most recent picture book to be published by Macmillan is Little Mouse’s Big Book of Beasts, the hotly anticipated follow-up to Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The pages feel quite interactive as there are postcards to lift up so it's engaging for younger readers. And what I love as well as a parent is that the book teaches about the importance of keeping in touch with the wider family as well as how great it is to go traveling but always come back home.Distinctive illustrations and lift-the-flap postcards make it a joy to share with children, who will also enjoy spotting the shadowy jackal lurking in the background of each picture.
