If you have a new baby in the house with an older sibling you’ll totally relate to As Quiet As A Mouse by Karen Owen. This charming picture book was published through Maverick Arts Publishing recently and it’s been making us giggle here.
As Quiet as a Mouse introduces us to Edgar the elephant and his baby sister Mabel. No matter how hard Edgar tries to be quiet, he just can’t manage it, and he always wakes his sister up. He makes so much noise.
He tells his friend Ruby the mouse that his Mum’s told him off for being too loud and Ruby comes up with a plan.
Poor Edgar ends up at Mouse School – can Mr Cheddar, the Head Mouse teach him to do things quietly? The illustrations by Evgenia Golubeva are bright and help to bring the amusing tale to life.
I won’t ruin the ending, but it’s rather funny.
Available for £6.99 this is another lovely picture book and I’ve included my Amazon affiliate link below for your information.
