Little Mouse series – Book 2
Having grown up a bit now, Little Mouse insists on doing everything on his own, from cleaning and baking to opening the door. It gets a little messy sometimes, but it doesn’t matter! Little Mouse’s friend Lyly comes over to play during the weekend. They build a little house and they play happily until they get into a quarrel over toys. Luckily, mom has a good solution.
“Delightful … Ideal for ages 1-4, Little Mouse Helps Out again features Jantti’s evocative retro ink and watercolour illustrations and a straightforward English translation just perfect for storytime.” – West Australian
”But the real charm of this book lies in the delightful expressiveness of Jäntti’s illustrations, with each cheeky grin or sulky pout bringing Little Mouse to life for young and old.” – Buzzwords magazine
”The book is perfectly suited for preschool children (from 1 to 4 years), richly illustrated in watercolours to keep the little little ones entertained and interested. It’s a book that children with a growing sense of independence easily can relate to. And as a rather eventful tale with a very happy and calm ending (spoiler alert…) – we think ‘Little Mouse Helps Out’ makes the perfect bedtime story.” – Little Scandinavian blog
”[The] retro ink and watercolour images give the story a classic feel.” – The Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Reading Time website
