Picture Book of the Month: Petr Horáček's The Mouse Who Reached the Sky

Today we are celebrating the paperback release of Petr Horáček's gorgeous, 

Little Mouse sees something red and shiny hanging from a tree and thinks it’s a marble, but Mole is sure it’s a balloon and Rabbit says it’s a ball! None of them can reach it by themselves, so how will they discover what it really is?

The Mouse Who Reached the Sky perfectly captures the sweet mix-ups children make when they are small, in a charming lift-the-flap storybook.

"Petr Horacek is one funny guy, as well as a natural-born teacher and a whizz with a paintbrush. Put him down as the thinking tot's Eric Carle." 

- Washington Post

"The Mouse Who Reached the Sky by Petr Horacek is the perfect story to introduce the principles of sharing and working together." 

- Made for Mums

The Mouse Who Reached the Sky is the latest Little Mouse picture book from Petr, author of A New House For Mouse and The Mouse Who Reached the Moon.

In celebration of Little Mouse’s new adventure, Petr came to visit us at Walker. After copious amounts of cake and tea (of course!) we were delighted to film a unique illustration masterclass all about how Petr creates Little Mouse.
