Here Comes Mr Postmouse by Marianne Dubuc
Here Comes Mr Postmouse by Marianne Dubuc. Pub. Book Island, 2016.
This is a picture book that you need to look at many times due mainly to the detail and quality of the illustrations.
Mr Postmouse needs to deliver postage to a wide variety of characters from Mr Bear who is awaiting a letter from his aunt, to Mrs Octopus who lives in a sunken ship with a treasure pot within. Penguin’s place is pretty cold and Mrs Turtle has a mobile home.
The home of each character is shown in cross-section and there is a lot going on in each home.
Of course it has to be someone’s birthday but who will get the birthday card?
Simple text and witty illustrations from the same author that gave us The Lion and the Bird, one of my favourite picture books also reviewed on this blog.
Good for juniors and primary students and a great book to share with your children.This book will be history soon as postmen seem to be an endangered species as people contact each other electronically.
