Deep in the woods was a little wooden house with nine neat windows and a red front door. When a little mouse decides it will make the perfect home, so do the other animals in the wood--including a great big bear!
But will the bear be able to put everything right when their home comes tumbling down? Find out in this beautifully illustrated retelling of a classic Russian folk tale, now available in a miniature gift edition.
'a vibrant modern retelling of a classic Russian folk tale...Rendered in electric hues...like a delectable candy box... There is a lesson here - about friendship, and sharing - but the book never feels plodding or pedantic. Its rhythms are as surprising as its vivid hues, full of small but powerful subversions of kid-lit logic: The animals show up in bunches, not page by page... What's more, there are no grown-ups here. The animals are peers: They create their own society, and resolve their own conflict. Which may be why the lesson just goes down like the truth.' * New York Times *
