A sky full of stars. The ocean. A forest filled with big brown bears. This book is full of great big things. A little mouse travels across the great big world with a small crumb in his hands. Finally, he arrives at his destination and delivers the crumb to his love – making the journey of great big things seem small, for he would do anything for love.
The sweet story and soft images create a touching book that any reader will love. The compassion and love in the story warms the heart as the reader watches the mouse make his long journey for his love. The illustrations are all two-page spreads that add to the sense of great big things and create stunning images, as if the reader is traveling along with the mouse to reach his companion. This story shows that we can spread love and kindness through the world, one little thing at a time.
