Description

"Visually lovely and perfectly cadenced, this warm-hearted adventure belongs in every library." -- THE HORN BOOK (STARRED REVIEW)
Tiny Mouse has never been to the cornfield before, so he's thrilled that his sister will take him. It's the perfect place to play games, but it's also full of strange new sights that make Tiny quiver and call out for his sister, who helps him feel braver. With boldly animated illustrations and a sympathetic story, Tiny's Big Adventure captures all the excitement -- and trepidation -- of a first-time experience.

About Martin Waddell

Martin Waddell is the author of more than one hundred books for children, including HI, HARRY! and the Little Bear books, illustrated by Barbara Firth; FARMER DUCK, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury; and A KITTEN CALLED MOONLIGHT, illustrated by Christian Birmingham. Of the inspiration for TINY'S BIG ADVENTURE, he says, "I saw a rusty old tractor nestled in high grass on a farm. It looked like an exciting thing to play with, but who would play there? The idea of a small field mouse, who had never been to the field, came to me -- and Tiny was born." Martin Waddell lives in Northern Ireland.

I hope, perhaps, they might ask me again some time." He lives in Cambridge, England.
