Mousey Mousey returns for more fun with the Witches in another series of short children's stories =.
Heather Flood has released a sequel, Mousey Mousey and the Witches' Revenge, about the adventures of Mousey Mousey and the witches. These stories are hugely popular with young children, especially for bed time.
The Witches Agatha and Bernice are now friends with Mousey Mousey, but that causes it's own problems as Agatha is feuding with another witch. These stories introduce more characters - a veritable coven of witches, (all with names that will make children chuckle, like Stinkblob and Mouldy Knickers), a joke-telling vampire who runs a choir, and various young animals.
Heather Flood's stories are aimed at young children up to ten and are entertaining, while at the same time having the moral code that is so important for young readers.
At the launch party in Eastbourne, presided over by the Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Mike Thompson, children dressed up as characters from the book and munched the witches favourite foods, Bat Wing Biscuits and Spider Leg Cheese Straws, and drank witches' brew. If you are in Eastbourne and saw children in mouses ears, now you know why!
Heather's first book was Mousey Mousey and the Witches' Spells, in which Mousey Mousey suffered from the attention of the witch Agatha, until rescued by Agatha's daughter Bernice. Here the witches become very protective of Mousey Mousey, while still finding time for mischief and disturbing the lives of the animals that live in Dobble.
Ten-year-old Briony Elizabeth Moorton says: “I love the way Heather Flood writes because I can picture her adventure stories in my head and act them out. I think Mousey Mousey and the Witches' Revenge is really creative, especially as the author has used talking animals instead of humans. To me it's Halloween and Christmas merged together. The stories flow so nicely you don't want to stop reading – you are desperate to know what happens next. This book and the characters in it are AMAZING.”
Mousey Mousey and the Witches' Revenge is available from bookstores and Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/
