Pinkie Mouse, where are you?


It has been a while since I linked up with Mrs Jump's Class for Book Talk Tuesday and I have had the pictures for my post about this book ready for weeks and just never got around to writing about it! (Don't forget to enter my giveaway after reading about this great book!)

It's such a lovely story that I recently discovered and loved sharing with my class. 

This is the tale of a Pinkie Mouse and Pangolin playing hide-and-squeak. 
From the back cover: Pangolin searches for Pinkie Mouse in all the scariest places - and discovers just how brave he really is..."

It's a rhyming story which makes it very easy to read and for the children to listen to and follow. We are introduced to Pangolin who is sensible and does not like being brave.

He sets off to find Pinkie Mouse and finds himself in some tricky situations, ignoring the advice given to him by his family about staying safe!
The page with the elephant's poo was popular with my class!

 At the end, when he still can't find his friend, he plucks up the courage to look inside the crocodile's mouth...

Until he hears...

Pinkie Mouse explain that she had been calling to Pangolin all along but could never make herself heard (and we loved looking back and spotting Pinkie Mouse on each page where Pangolin does something scary). 

She explains that she saw how brave her friend was and hopes that she will be that brave when she is big! 

(I have to admit I almost brushed a little tear away when reading this page!)

There is some information about Pangolins at the end which was a great addition to the book!

I loved this story and think you will too! Don't forget to go and check out the other books being recommended this week in Book Talk Tuesday and don't forget to enter my giveaway below!
