The Mouse Who Reached the Sky

By Petr Horacek
Illustrated 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.

  • Featuring the same mouse character as the prize-winning A New House for Mouse and The Mouse Who Ate the Moon.
  • Lift the flap in this perfect interactive novelty book to be shared time and time again.
  • "Petr Hor cek 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
