My girl, Morgan has a new book out! It's a picture book, too, with the illustrations made by her sister! Fun, yes?
Anywho, I get to review it today!
It's a short book - I read it in a couple minutes this morning, actually, and the illustrations are SUPER cute. It's also based on a true story, as you find out in the afterward, so that was awesome.
It had very much a Beatrix Potter feel to the story itself - though much shorter than most of her books. It also made for a very heavy-handed moral - listen to your parents or you'll be sorry, but it was cute at the same time. If my younger siblings weren't so old now, I'd probably get them a physical copy. Alas, but they've outgrown picture books with heavy-handed morals.
About the Book
Martha Squirrel made her journey down the big hill seem like a grand adventure. But what happens when Carrie Mouse disobeys her mama and explores the giant garage?
Inspired by a true story, Carrie Mouse and the Giant Garage tells the story of a young mouse who gets trapped in the garage of the human house at the bottom of the hill. Beautifully illustrated with clay sculptures, this is a book you won’t want to miss!
