Around the World with Mouk: A Trail of Adventure
by Marc Boutavant
Age Range: 6-8
Mouk, an adorable and intrepid little bear sets off on a journey around the world. He visits eleven countries and invites his readers to explore with him as he goes on his travels across the globe. Along the way he makes many new friends and discovers different cultures. Who can resist smiling at a koala in a Hawaiian shirt or a peacock riding a bicycle? Travel with Mouk and experience the Feast of Ganesh, climbing the Andes or sleeping in a hotel make of ice.
French author and illustrator Marc Boutavant has created quite a sophisticated picture book with lots of information packed into every single page. There is so much going on in each detailed illustration with the different scenes and adventures to explore that sometimes the subtle humour can be missed. Younger children will enjoy looking at the kaleidoscope of colour in the pictures, but it is older children who are likely to get the most out of this book as it is ideal for learning about the world.
Around the World with Mouk is a very robust large format book that is virtually indestructible, with extra-thick and glossy paper, and padded covers. Children will also have great fun with the 40 re-usable stickers that come with it. A remarkable book that will enthral readers of all ages.
