Frog and Mouse by Tracey Corderoy

Frog and Mouse

Frog was bored.There was nothing to do. 'Don't be bored, Frog,' said Mouse. 'We can go to the seaside!' Shy, cautious Frog is gently encouraged to explore his imagination by his more adventurous friend, Mouse as the two friends take a scooter ride, swim in the sea, eat delicious ice cream and even fly to the moon - all from their own home!

I have met Tracey Corderoy a couple of time and I have been lucky enough to read and review a number of her books. Whenever I receive or see a new book by Tracey I am amazed to see the number of different characters, styles and audiences her books reach. 

This book will appeal to her younger audience and is based on two characters: a frog and a mouse who go on an imaginary visit to the seaside. 

With the long summer holidays with us soon I am sure that families everywhere will hear the words 'I'm bored' at least once a day and this book gives a starting point for families to go on many journeys like the one Frog and Mouse go on.

The story is a great one to share at story time or to introduce imagination to young children. The story is told in short, simple sentences and with few words on each page, perfect for young children. Add to this, beautiful illustrations by Anna I. Popescu, which are simple and child friendly but tell the story in their own way 

This book would make a great gift for any young child who wants to spend their time imagining they are somewhere exciting or fantastic every day.

Thank you to the author, Tracey Corderoy, and the publishers, Meadowside Children's Books, for sending me this book to review.
