This has to be one of the most beautiful books it has been my pleasure to review. All books from Thames & Hudson are of high quality, but this one is a cut above. I tried it out on one of our younger granddaughters and she loved it. In edition to the gorgeous artwork, she liked the rhyme. She also especially enjoys books with panels she can flip to find surprises under each one, and this book has lots of those.
Written with a gentle rhyme that reflects the slow pace of Mouse’s rambling journey, and illustrated in Alice Melvin’s inimitable style, Mouse’s Wood is a heartwarming celebration of slow living in nature. This beautifully designed book also features special die-cut flaps and includes a spread featuring a nature calendar of plants, birds, and animals for children to search for in the wild.
Mouse first ventures out in wintry January to visit his friend Squirrel. Mouse moves on to wake up Hedgehog for the arrival of spring, and as he continues along the path in the wood, Mouse’s journey from friend to friend maps out the changes in seasons from January through to December.
