Book Review: Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears by Emily Gravett - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (26 Aug 2013)
Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears is an interesting book, but not so much a story.
The little mouse is scared of most things in life and all the phobia's are listed down in this book. Each page lists a different phobia some better known than others. For example fear of the dark, fear of big animals, fear of spiders and many more.
The most enjoyable aspect of this book is the illustrations, quite bit of care has gone into the artwork and interactive pages, some of them quite eye catching. Overall an interesting book, but not really a story.
