Can I Come Too?

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

Even the smallest of us can make adventures happen. The very small mouse at the start of this tale decides that he’ll set off to find the biggest creature in the world.  On his way, he makes increasingly larger friends who think this is a great idea too. Mouse, frog, cat, badger, goat… together their journey towards the ocean, where the biggest creature lives, becomes a unifying life experience.

Nicola Bailey’s artwork is detailed and exquisite. She shows the band of realistic, yet endearing, animals journeying through idyllic habitat, filled with poppies and wild irises, riverbanks and woods.

At every step along this simple adventure, very young children will experience a sense of wonder. An inspiring introduction to the natural world, which offers young readers plenty of encouragement to explore it.
