Marcello Mouse and the Masked Ball

Marcello Mouse and the Masked BallI love this book, and more importantly, so does my two year-old daughter. The illustrations are art in the best possible sense – they are rich and evocative and they stir the imagination. Marcello is a great gutsy little character. Our favourite bit is when Marcello slips into the ball and the words say HOW DARING, HOW BOLD – you probably have to see that in context, it’s great fun, really it is. A real treat of a book. I’m always glad when Libby chooses it for storytime.

Checek out the book for yourself – some of the pages (not all in order!) can be viewed here.
