Fiddlesticks!

Illustrated by Sally Garland

A warm and witty picture book with lots of laughs and a heart-warming underlying message about the power of friendship.

Mouse has built a lovely new house. But as he stands outside to survey his handiwork, he notices one window is a little crooked. His friend Bear offers to straighten it. Except, in the process...he pulls it off the wall. Fortunately, Squirrel passes by and offers to fix it. Except, in the process...he breaks the pipework and causes a flood. And so it goes on until Mouse's house completely collapses under the weight of all this help. Mouse's house is ruined! What will he do now?

Now based in Brazil with his wife and two sons, Sean Taylor is an award winning author who has published over 30 books.

Sally Garland grew up in a small town near Inverness. According to her parents her first really good drawing was a large mural in crayon on their sitting-room wall. She then went on to study illustration and graphic design for four years at Edinburgh College of Art and now lives in Glasgow with her partner and their son.
