Little Mouse has found a new book, and this time it's full of scary creatures. Undaunted, he bravely sets about removing or altering all the scariest bits: cosy mittens to cover the lion's claws, ruby lips to replace the shark's teeth -- and he even pole vaults out of the way of the bear!

After facing his phobias, little mouse returns to take on his next set of challenges...horrible, terrifying, sharp-of-tooth-and-claw, beasts.

Clever holes, flaps, and torn pages allow mouse to alter and interject upon each entry, changing them into something more suitable for his fragile nature. Both creatures that prey on mice, and those that don't, frighten him, so he works very hard to artistically make them harmless.
On one page he pastes a toothbrush in the mouth of a crocodile, while on another he swats a wasp with an over-sized newspaper. This is skilfully done in a pieced-together set of mediums, with drawings getting changed by photo-items and paints that mouse users.

Finally, having "conquered" all these fearsome foes, mouse finds himself facing the scariest one yet. Full of detail and fun, Little Mouse's Book of Beasts is another example of Emily Gravett's unique and playful style.
