Deep in the wild woodland forest live the unlikely duo of Raven and Mouse. Bursting for adventure, Mouse befriends the clever, bookish Raven and convinces him to join her on adventures far away from his safe nest full of books, high up in the giant old oak tree.
In this first appbook adventure, Mouse is on her own adventure to snatch the Golden Leaf from the top of the tree when she meets Raven. He loves to read about adventures, but is Raven brave enough to leave his books at home and go on adventures into the big wild forest, far away from his cosy nest?
One key issue in the book is which of the two main characters in the Raven and Mouse appbook will children identify with more? Raven who is slightly bookish, shy and secretly wanting adventure, or Mouse who is busy and buzzy? Or maybe a combination of the two?Find out more
Seeing Raven enjoy reading so much shows him to be a good role model. At first he only wants to have adventures by reading about them. But then he does have adventures, being very brave and bold, making clear the link that loving books does not exclude having fun.Find out more
