We are big fans of Petr Horacek’s picture books and were thrilled to receive a copy of The Mouse Who Ate the Moon to review.
A little mouse loves looking at the moon every night and thinks that it is so beautiful that she would love to have a piece all of her own. One night, her dream comes true and she is sure that she has found a piece of the moon that has fallen from the sky. She can’t resist a quick nibble, but when the moon appears smaller that night she is worried that she really has eaten part of it.
The illustrations in this peep through story book are stunning and we completely fell in love with the little mouse. It is a lovely story about friendship that we highly recommend.
This is a wonderful book that we would rate as a five star read.
