Fred the (Quite) Brave Mouse product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsFred Mouse is endearing, frustrating, rather boastful at times, and desperately in love with a mouse he has dreamed of, but not met - yet.

Travel with Fred as he seeks out his mysterious chocolate & strawberry love...

Having been a great fan of Wal Footrot and the Dog for as long as I can recall seeing them, I was heartbroken to hear that Murray Ball had decided to end his drawing of them for personal reasons. So it was with great joy that I found this 2003 book being republished... welcome back Murray!

This is the tale of young Fred, a mouse who has inherited his mother's VERY long tail. He's alone, cold and looking for something... and then he smells... "Her". The journey to discover the source of this delightful girl-mouse smell forces him to step outside his home and confront the big world, and in the process encounter some friends, have some adventures, and eventually discover someone very special.

Overall, drawn in iconic Murray Ball style, and deftly coloured in watercolours, this is another classic tale from a master of Kiwi Cartooning. The story is cute, and makes for some awesome bedtime reading for the young ones. I would have said, at first glance, that the price was a little steep, but once I got it in my hands and saw that it was 80+ pages... worth every penny, though hardcover would have been my personal preference, just for durability's sake.

Product reviews for listing 758: Rattletrap Car
Author: Phyllis Root, Illustrated by Jill Barton

Product image for Rattletrap CarThe rattletrap car doesn't go fast and it doesn't go far - and when a family set off to the lake in it one hot day it soon starts to fall apart. But lumpety bumpety, a beach ball replaces the wheel; wappity bappity, a surfboard replaces the floor; a thermos of razzleberry dazzleberry snazzleberry fizz does for the petrol tank, all stuck on with chocolate marshmallow fudge delight! The rattletrap car reaches the lake, and takes the family safely - if noisily - home again.
