Mouse on the river

This follow-up to ‘Mouse’s Wood’ accompanies Mouse on a new adventure – from the woods, down a gently flowing river to the open sea – to visit an old friend. Detailed illustrations feature many plants and animals for children to identify, and the atmospheric rhyming text winds down to a peaceful conclusion perfect for bedtime. Taking place over the course of twenty-four hours, the gently rhyming story tracks the changing environment of the river’s banks, the shift from day to night, pleasant weather to rain and back again, and introduces a whole new cast of friendly characters who wave to Mouse on the way, including beavers, water voles, and water fowl aplenty.
