The Mouse who Reached the Sky – Petr Horacek


20th June 2016 | by Rachael Rogan

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.
