Book Review - Flying Like Flittermouse by Jan Fearnley

April Prendergast

We are very proud to be on the Books & Pieces Parent Panel.  Flying Like Flittermouse by Jan Fearnley is one of the books which they have kindly sent us to review.

This book is about...

Flying like Flittermouse is a lovely story about Etsuko the hamster who wishes she could fly like the dazzling Flittermouse.  She is determined to fly and tries lots of different ways of achieving her goal.  However, it is only with the help of her friends that she manages to make her dreams come true.

We like this book because...

One of the main reasons we like this book is beause of its underlying message.  We are big believers in dreaming big, following your dreams and never giving up and that is exactly what this book is about.  We really value friendships too and the way in which Etsuko's freinds help her is really lovely to see.

As you can see, the illustrations in the book are absolutely beautiful.  Incredibly detailed, fun and colourful.

Rosie's favourite part is...

Rosie says that her favourite thing about this book is the fold-out map.  It really is a fabulous map. She loves finding things on it and as we read through the story she kept saying "Mummy, my find that bit on the map.  Let me show you."  It really helps to make the story interactive and adds to the enjoyment of reading the book.
