Inventive, touching and very skilfully made

‘Little Mouse’s Big Adventure’ is a thrilling adventure in which Little Mouse has to be braver than he really is and overcome a lot of fears. He makes new friends, finds himself running for his life, saves his family and in doing so acquires the self-confidence he needs. Gerda De Preter gives us a gripping, heart-warming and humorous story to read to children. Dutch master illustrator Thé Tjong-Khing adds further life to the characters in his celebrated, detailed and seemingly naive style.
