Now for the review-
Little Nelly reads something Remarkable.
She is a mouse.
She is grey. She has a long Tail. And she has big ears.
So she goes in search of more mice, which she soon finds. With only a little hesitation they welcome her into their home behind the skirting board and she begins to live the life of a mouse, albiet a rather large one. But she soon starts to feel a little cramped, and then the fun begins...
Thank you to Bloomsbury for this review copy!
What I thought:
The story of Little Nelly, an elephant who believes she is a mouse after reading that mice can be grey and have long tails, is very sweet. The antics of the mice, first welcoming Nelly into their home, though it is a touch small for a little elephant, and then getting her to the zoo, whilst covering up the signs for elephants and instead writing "Mice." on them, are most funny and cute.
It is a perfect book for 3+ and will be sure to make any room cascade with laughter.
