Bringing you up to date with what's happening in the children's books world
The Station Mouse
Written and illustrated by Meg McLaren
Maurice is a most conscientious station mouse and is careful to follow the rules - taking care not to be seen and staying in during the daytime. He is in charge of lost property and the bold and detailed illustrations show the wonderful plethora of belongings the passengers leave behind. Maurice wonders whether they miss their possessions until the day when he just cannot help himself and returns a very special lost item to a little boy. It seems that some rules can be changed for the better. The simple text is just right, and the detailed illustrations deserve careful examination as they add to and extend the tale. A delightful story.
