Where Happiness Lives
Written by Barry Timms
Illustrated by Greg Abbott
This book is beautifully presented, with a cut-out front cover and plenty of windows and flaps for little hands to open and peek through. It is an enjoyable tale of three little mice. Grey Mouse loves his home, but when he sees where White Mouse lives, he becomes dissatisfied. Together they become even more envious when they see where Brown Mouse lives-a huge palace with riches galore. However, the message of where true happiness is to be found rings out loud and clear as the mice realise that a home is much more than a house. Delightful soft colours and lots of detail on each page will appeal to young readers, and there is plenty to talk about. A lovely book to share.
