This week’s stack of books to review are all exceptionally shiny and twinkly and hot-off-the-press. Mmmm… new book smell, I may need a moment.

These two cuties are just friendship in a nutshell, aren’t they?

Little Mouseling suffers from younger sibling disease. Sometimes her brothers and sisters move far too quickly and she’s left all on her own with no-one to play with.

It’s time for Little Mouseling to hunt for a friend in Wintermouse Wood, and there’s no shortage of candidates. Sadly, not being able to swim, to climb or to fly makes it all a little tricky.

“It seemed, in this world, she was out on her own. Deep in Wintermouse Wood she felt… quite alone.” If IMG_1538you are exceptionally fleet of eye (love a mixed metaphor) you may have noticed Little Mouseling had a friend-shadow all along. It’s a “tinyful, weenimous, little black vole.” And a beautiful friendship is born.

This is another picture book in the fabulous rhyme, beautiful illustrations category. A real sweetie.

Check out Side by side at Auckland Libraries.
