The Mouse Who Ate the Moon

By Petr Horacek
Illustrated by Petr Horacek

A beautiful peep-through story book about a mouse, a tasty piece of the moon and the importance of friendship.

When Little Mouse wakes one morning, she finds her dream has come true. Outside her burrow, a piece of the moon has fallen from the sky and it smells delicious. But what happens once Little Mouse has had a little nibble? Peep through the cut-out holes in this beautiful and heart-warming tale from the award-winning and much-loved Petr Horacek.

  • Features the same mouse character as the prize-winning A New House for Mouse.
  • Cut-out holes and shaped pages make this the perfect interactive novelty book to be shared time and time again.
  • "Petr Horacek is one funny guy, as well as a natural-born teacher and a whizz with a paintbrush. Put him down as the thinking tot s Eric Carle." - Washington Post
