This book’s sub-title, ‘A Tale of Hide and Squeak!’ hints at fun to come! The rhyming text rattles away and we soon discover that Pinkie Mouse is mischievous, whilst playmate Pangolin is cautious. Parent and Grandma Pangolin have warned him against playing near bees, chimps, elephants, porcupines, bush babies, or pythons. Pangolins tend to be shy so confronting all the above creatures whilst hunting for Pinkie is quite remarkable. The characters are well portrayed, in bold, plausible pictures which extend the story, allowing lots of talk about the animals, their habits and habitats. The twist at the end of the tale is quite endearing, encouraging an exploratory view of the world. The final page gives intriguing information regarding pangolins, sadly, an endangered species.
