Paperback: 32 pages

Age Range: 5 – 7 years

I love Mini Grey’s books. She has such a unique way of illustrating and telling the story. It is not often you find someone so talented they are equally good as author and illustrator. Although she is very popular I think she is underated for the amount of talent she has. She should be even more popular and successful. Her books should be up there with the perpetual bestsellers such as Julia Donaldson and Roald Dahl

Today I have chosen her book Hermelin: The Detective Mouse. I love the front cover!

Hermelin is a noticer. He is also a finder. The occupants of Offley Street are delighted when their missing items are found, but not so happy to learn that their brilliant detective is a mouse! What will happen to Hermelin? Will his talents go unrewarded?
