Here comes Mr Postmouse by Marianne Dubuc
Book Island, 2016. ISBN 9780994128201
Recommended. Themes: Picture Books; Animals. The winning feature of this book by French-Canadian author Dubuc is the detailed pen and ink style cartoon illustrations which show the homes of the animals to which Mr Postmouse delivers his parcels and letters. The text accompanying these illustrations are printed in a very tiny font which signposts that they are to take a 'back seat' to the quirky and cute illustrations that show the cross-sections of the animal homes, revealing lifestyles of the families inside - for example, the 7 level bunny bunk bed.
Young readers (particularly pre-readers!) will love browsing the illustrations for the quirks of family life revealed both above ground, behind closed doors and under water.
