Description

The (Fierce) Grey Mouse is the story of a Little Grey Mouse who desperately wants to be fearsome and strong. He does his exercises, eats his porridge, drinks all of his milk - and, soon enough, Little Grey Mouse grows to be fierce. But, roaring and pouncing from his perch high up in a tree, Fierce Grey Mouse accidentally scares away all of his friends. Fierce Grey Mouse soon realizes the importance of friendship and being true to yourself, and this, in essence, is the message of the story. Beautifully written and illustrated by the highly-regarded children's illustrator Chantal Bourgonje, this book will be a delight that young children and their parents can share.
