My Dog Mouse

£6.99

My Dog Mouse‘ is a one title masterclass in why picture books are essential to all readers. We take a journey with Mouse who is ‘old and fat with ears as thin as pancakes’, who ‘walks at a snail’s pace’. His walker, who narrates the route, loves Mouse, despite his age and slowness- ‘step, pause, step, pause, step, pause’, and so do we. Like the unnamed walker, we wish Mouse was  his- or ours.

Lyrically descriptive, rich with the pathos of time and age, layered with deep and emotional inference, this is a perfect book. Every time I look it over, I feel moved and awed by this quality title. ‘My Dog Mouse‘ is a ‘forever’ book. Anyone who has loved a pet, longed for a pet, held a pet, or known that unconditional love that comes from a pet, will empathise and love, ‘My Dog Mouse’. 

Description

My Dog Mouse

Eva Lindstrom

(Gecko Press)

‘My Dog Mouse’ is a truly special, beautiful book. There is an apparent disdain in the action of walking the dog. Yet the storyteller and the walker know that the dog is old and dearly loved. We know these walks are a bonding, fragile with longing and fear of an end.
For anyone who has longed for a dog, or loved a dog, this reading experience is particularly poignant. ‘My Dog Mouse‘ is a picture book for all ages to know, share and treasure.
