Unwrap this parcel and find ten wonderful stories. There are plenty of animals including Miss Mouse who brilliantly outwits Thomas J. Cat and a haddock who falls in love with a mermaid. There are classic stories, like the town mouse who visits his country cousin, and new stories, such as the one told to Marika. There are stories to listen to, stories to read, stories to hear and stories to join in with - all of them are stories that five year olds will love!
As well as being an author and anthologist, Pat Thomson works with teachers as a lecturer and librarian - work which involves a constant search for short stories which have both quality and child-appeal. She is the compiler of many previous, successful age-ranged and subject-ranged anthologies for the Doubleday/Corgi list. She is also an Honorary Vice-President of the Federation of Children's Book Groups. She is married with two grown-up children.
