Little mouse has found a gorgeous, yummy cupcake, with pink icing, sprinkles and chunks of chocolate. But it’s big– so big, that it takes up a double-page spread to illustrate. So mouse can’t carry it home. One by one she asks her friends for help. None of them is big enough to carry it either, but each asks her for a taste. Before they know it, that yummy cupcake is the perfect size for a mouse.
This story is an ideal candidate to share as a flannel board. But read the story from the book first, because the illustrations are big, simple and lovely. And it pairs wonderfully with other mouse books or stories about food.
