‘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: Under_5
Mimi the Mouse has a dream; she wants to be on the stage, to be able to sing, to dance and to act, but you need to be talented and beautiful and Mimi doesn’t think she is either. Her friend Albert the Mole gives her some very wise advice, “You can learn how to sing and dance” and Mimi is nothing if not tenacious and determined, but will it be enough to make her a star?
German author and illustrator Helga Bansch has created a sumptuous riot of colour illustrations, full of expression to accompany this lovely story of following your dreams. Mimi is a delightful little mouse and some of the drawings are truly comic such as Misha the Frog teaching Mimi to dance and Bubble the Blackbird giving Mimi singing lessons. This gorgeous book will delight young readers everywhere.
