This book is all about a clever mouse who tricked animals to save himself by creating an imaginary monster but what happens when the he comes face to face with his imagination.
The book is written in rhythmic tone, it’s fun to read the repetitive lines which make the reading all the more interesting. The descriptive words in the book are quite catchy, knobbly knees, turned our toes,purple prickles, owl ice-cream,scrambled snake, roasted fox ….
The illustrations are undoubtedly wonderful and eye catching. Kids would definitely love to read it repeatedly. There is even a movie made on the book and it is equally awesome.
A must read
