Another squish rabbit book and this is just beautiful!
Squish is a little rabbit and Squish is scared of many things, like storms and chickens and especially the dark. Squish even tried to hide from the dark. To forget his fear Squish played with his friend but when Squish couldn’t find his friend he got scared and goosebumply. Squish has to be brave.
This is a gorgeous book with a simple text that has a strong message about tackling fears and friendship. it is sensitively written. The art work is a collage combination of traditionally created illustrations and mixed media like torn papers, textiles and chicken feathers! The endpapers are delightful and the covers padded for extra squishiness.
Filled with luscious photographs of baby animals including a ring tailed lemur, kitten, finch, chimpanzee, duckling, porcupine, fawn and of course a human, this book is a celebration of life and babies and all the unique things about each of them. It celebrates just how precious, special and unique each individual baby is as well as the things that they say and do.
Adorable large pictures on white pages with ‘special’ words highlighted in colour add to the beauty of this book.
… and these are the three stars of this delightfully rolling verse. Mousey Brown is a mouse and she is very tiny and her heart goes pitter-pat-pounding with love for the daring and flair of the hare. The hare is wondrously wild and fearlessly free and unaware of Mousey Brown’s affection. The hound is a dog, just biding his time until the uppity hare comes a little too close. When hare does get a little close and entwined in all sorts of trouble of course it’s shy Mousey Brown who comes to her rescue with amazing courage.
Lovely illustrations that are perfectly matched to the beautiful verse. A glorious book that must be read aloud.
It doesn’t matter what type of day it is … whether it is a sunny, big grassy hill day, or whether is is a windy stay inside day, or if it’s a rainy make paper boat day. It doesn’t matter if the word has blue skies, or grey skies because whatever the weather this book celebrates love and how the people we love make the world a beautiful place.
Stephen has created more adorable characters. This beautiful book, illustrated with water colours and ink, needs to be shared with loved ones both young and not so young.
