Review

Little Mouse is scared of most things, from creepy crawlies and loud noises, to getting lost. The pages of this beautiful book gradually reveal his fears, until - on the very last page – we learn that, despite his diminutive stature, he is still capable of scaring someone much bigger than himself.

This is an extraordinary picture book, complete with nibbled pages, novelty elements, flaps, die-cuts and even a fold-out map of the Isle of Fright at the end of the book. A deserving winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal 2008, it uses Gravett's trademark collage technique to brilliant effect. Young children will identify with the charming rodent protagonist, whose story offers a great starting point for conversations about fears and anxieties of all kinds.
