The Mouse’s Apples Illustrated by Kristyna Litten


There's always room on the bookshelf for a new beautiful picture book and this sweet offering from author Frances Stickley and illustrator Kristyna Litten is a delight from start to finish.

In The Mouse's Apples we find ourselves in an idyllic countryside setting on a warm sunny day with a plucky young mouse setting out foraging for apples. To the mouse's surprise, she gathers a record haul of her favourite delicious fruit but before she has time to take a single tasty bite she is approached by a very grouchy very hungry bear. A charming tale of friendship and the value of sharing.

The pastel palette with vibrant pops of vivid orange and dreamlike swathes of blossoms and wildflowers provide a breath-taking backdrop for this charming story. Kristyna has perfectly captured the characters' emotive expressions and woodland landscapes unfurl with each turn pf the page. Readers are in for a truly immersive story time experience. The Mouse’s Apples is published by Andersen Press.
