Fierce Grey Mouse

ABOUT THE BOOK

The enchanting story of a Little Grey Mouse who desperately wants to be fearsome and strong. He does his exercises, eats his porridge, drinks all of his milk – and, soon enough, Little Grey Mouse grows to be fierce.

But, roaring and pouncing from his perch high up in a tree, Fierce Grey Mouse accidentally scares away all of his friends .

Fierce Grey Mouse soon realises the importance of friendship and being true to yourself: the message of the story.

Beautifully written and illustrated by the highly-regarded children’s illustrator Chantal Bourgonje, this book is a delight that young children and their families can share and enjoy.
