I discovered Arty Mouse last year at Felixstowe Book Festival (2017) and been a fan ever since. I was pleased to see them in attendance again this year and again offering amazing deals on their brilliant books.
When I first approached this task I thought of Peculiar Pets by Victoria Roberts. It's a picture book about a little girl that wants a pet but her mum says "We'll see" whenever she asks. The little girl creates pets out of bits and pieces around the home. It is a delightful read about a child's imagination and creative play.
