A New House for Mouse

An ingenious, colourful novelty book with peep-through holes. Mouse is little and so is her house - but her apple is huge. She needs to find a home that is big enough for the both of them. But as she visits all sorts of other creatures to see if she can share their homes, her apple shrinks and shrinks - she's been nibbling it away! Peep through the holes and join Mouse in her search for a new home.

About the Author

Petr Horacek trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague before becoming a graphic designer, illustrator and painter. He is the award-winning author of When the Moon Smiled and Silly Suzy Goose. Born in Czechoslovakia, Petr now lives in Worcestershire with his wife and two daughters.


A mouse's eyes are bigger than her stomach-and her meal is bigger than her house, too-in this chipper paper-over-board picture book featuring die-cut holes that grow larger with each spread. When a big red apple appears outside her hole-sweet-home, Little Mouse is eager to make a meal out of it. But, as the sizeable fruit won't fit into her modest dwelling, she sets off to find a new home for herself and her hefty harvest. However, each new larger die-cut hole the mouse happens upon is already inhabited by a content owner with no room to spare. Luckily, her search makes Little Mouse hungry, and as she takes time for a few nibbles of apple, makes the fruit a little less cumbersome. By the time she sees a hole that looks just right, she's actually right back where she started, and with an apple that can now fit inside her home with her. The simple wanderings of a rodent on a mission make the perfect plot for these die-cut pages. Horacek's (When the Moon Smiled) energetic watercolor-and-cut-paper art suggests a kicky blend of Eric Carle and Simms Taback. Black scratchy backgrounds alongside the brighter peek-a-book effect will have little ones imagining the view underground in their own backyards. Ages 3-5. (Nov.)
