Mouse Bird Snake Wolf

This new myth is a tale of gods asleep in the clouds, leaving the world unfinished. There are gaps that need filling. So three children, Sue, Harry and younger Ben decide to do something about it. They start small with a mouse – made from petals and nuts. Then Sue’s creation is a bird from sticks, leaves and grass. More creatures are created, but with terrifying results.
David Kean’s illustrations are stunning.
