O Grande Livro dos Medos do Pequeno Rato
It’s hilarious and serious both. It can be appreciated on so many levels, by many different readers/listeners-viewers, including very young children (without the names of the phobias) and readers of all ages through adulthood.
It would make a fabulous gift for anyone undertaking a new, scary endeavor, or any phobia sufferer.
The last page is a hoot.
The illustrations, including a pull out map, are just wonderful.

Review by Anastasia Hutson
This adventurous book is about a mouse who is scared of everything! Little Mouse takes us through all of his fears and worries of everyday life. This picture book is like a little journal that the mouse keep his fears in while also educating the reader on different fears that people can have.

Abrir este libro es encontrarte con una edición preciosa. Desde la portada ya vemos cómo hay un hueco (donde se ve el ratoncito) como si alguien hubiera recortado esa página.

For example, the little mouse is afraid of spiders, what’s under the bed, and being alone in the dark. So ...more
The illustrations are the highlight of the book; they are engaging and fun. Gravett created a collage-style book that looks like found, ripped pieces of paper were taped into the book. Some of the pages even unfold and expand. The plot is established on the first endpaper on a torn piece of paper. This “tattered” feeling is echoed in the black and white stamps of common f ...more

Little Mouse is afraid of many things: spiders, shadows, knives, and cats, of course. He draws pictures of them all in this "journal" of fears. But at least there's one thing that's always afraid of him.
This is a very clever book. The story isn't complicated; each page is a different fear with minimal story-text. I thought it unusual that a children's book would have the names and definitions for various phobias (such as a ...more
