The Mouse Who Reached the Sky

By Petr Horacek

Little Mouse has a big plan in this charming lift-the-flap story book by the award-winning Petr Horacek.

A beautifully illustrated and charming story about Little Mouse and her friends from the much loved and award-winning Petr Horacek, an illustrator described by the Washington Post as "the thinking tot's Eric Carle". What is that beautiful red, shiny thing hanging from the tree? Little Mouse thinks it's a marble, but Mole is sure it's a balloon and Rabbit says it's a ball. None of them can reach it by themselves, so how will they discover what it really is? Enjoy lifting the flap to reveal the tasty surprise at the end.

Reviews

'The Mouse Who Reached the Sky by Petr Horacek is the perfect story to introduce the principles of sharing and working together.' Made for Mums

'Horacek’s story is full of more surprises for the reader - cut outs, fold out pages and lots of other tactile treats. There are visual delights too: Mole’s burrow seems almost 3D it glows so much, as warm and snug as can be, and you feel you could pick up the shiny apples that surround Little Mouse and friends on the final spread.'

'Stunningly bright pictures, packed with humour, bring the minimal text to life. […] There are more holes and folding pages to explore, making this book a pleasure to share – with a great visual joke at the end.' Carousel
