Mine!

All Mine! is a new children’s book by Zehra Hicks.
Mouse is just about to enjoy his sandwich when Seagull swoops in, screeching in the way that seagulls do, “mine, all mine” and making off with the food. The poor Mouse fights a valiant battle to get some food, stalked and foiled at every turn by the aggressive and shouty marauder.

Eating fish and chips on the beach is a New Zealand ‘thing’. So are entitled and hungry seagulls, keeping a beady and increasing malevolent eye on your food, just waiting to swoop in…

Anyway, clever Mouse sorts it out, tricks Seagull and is able to have his cake – and share it with the other mice.

Funny, understated and very satisfying!
