‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
Age Range: 6-8
Mouse wants to see the world and sets off on his big adventure. Along the way he meets up with a dog and an elephant who also decide to join Mouse on his journey. After travelling through several magic lands and crossing the ocean, they come across the Quickeye and, in their naivety, have lunch with him which is definitely a big mistake. It is down to the ingenuity of Mouse to save his friends.
Quickeye is a traditional story taken from the popular Mediterranean tale that emerged from Greek and Roman mythology about the Cyclops giant with the single eye in the middle of its forehead. Maurizio A. C. Quarello’s illustrations with their bold, dominant brush strokes and the playful humour give this tale a very modern feel.
