Mouse Bird Snake Wolf by David Almond, illustrated by Dave McKean – really interesting to read this complicated creation story, beautiful illustrations with the most intriguing lesson about curiosity- what could fill gaps that were left in a world that was quite peaceful but missing… something. Sometimes, there is a bit of violence, but overall I just loved this story. I know this book will be a great fit with my Year 3 students when they investigate folktales and creation stories. As I’ve mentioned before, David Almond is one of those authors that never disappoints and always has me in awe with his book creations.

Goodreads Summary: “The imagination of three children takes on unexpected life in a creation tale from the dream team of David Almond and Dave McKean. The gods have created a world that is safe and calm and rather wonderful. They have built mountains, forests, and seas and filled the world with animals, people, and unnamed beasts. Now their days are fat with long naps in the clouds, mutual admiration, and tea and cake. But their world has gaps in it filled with emptiness, gaps that intrigue Harry, Sue, and little Ben until they begin to see what might fill them. One by one the children conjure, from twigs and leaves and stones, a mousy thing, a chirpy thing, and a twisty legless thing. But as the children’s ideas grow bolder, the power of their visions proves greater and more dangerous than they, or the gods, could ever have imagined. Is it possible to unmake what’s been made?”

Treat- came from a care package from my parents, a favorite treat from Trader Joes!
