Mr Postmouse’s Rounds by Marianne Dubuc

Think of all the positive children’s book descriptors you can and they probably apply to this book! The story is relatively simple and charming but the illustrations are phenomenal-  so detailed and beautiful giving glimpses into the homes of all the creatures to whom Mr Postmouse delivers the mail. It is fascinating to look at all the hidden, unexpected, yet appropriately quirky features in each home and the pictures enthral children sharing the book. It is the sort of book where you read the text then spend ages sharing, laughing and pointing out different things spotted on each page.

In class this is the sort of book that children will love to keep exploring for the fine detail in the illustrations. It could easily be used as a stimulus for children to design similar homes for other creatures or to write descriptions of the homes as if they were being put up for sale. Definitely a book I’d have loved to share with my daughter when she was younger and one I’d love to use with children in school. Highly recommended!

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
