See Inside


Long, long ago, lived a little grey mouse
Who decided one day it was time to move house.
So he searched high and low,
through the day into night...
But would Mouse ever find a house that was right?

A House for Mouse is a heart-warming picture book about a little grey mouse who leaves his tiny hole in the forest to explore the wider world. On his search for a new house he unwittingly encounters the homes of some of the biggest stars in Fairytale Valley, including Old Mother Hubbard, the Three Little Pigs, Rapunzel and Hansel and Gretel. Eventually he comes face to face with the most spectacular house of all: Sleeping Beauty's glorious, towering castle, where he concludes that grandeur counts for nothing: it's family and friends that make a home.

Children will enjoy the infectiously rhyming text and delight in spotting references to other well-known fairytales in the pictures. This is a bedtime story both children and adults will love to share.
