Mr. Postmouse’s Rounds

by Marianne Dubuc

Mr. PostMouse's Rounds Marianne DubucVeteran Quebec author-illustrator Marianne Dubuc’s latest picture book channels Richard Scarry as the reader follows Mr. Postmouse on his journey through a grassy village. Stops at the homes of various animals are depicted with Dubuc’s trademark combination of clean lines, soothing colours, and cute (but not cutesy) animal characters. Whether above ground, in the sea, underground, or in a tree, the various domiciles offer great visual interest, guaranteed to keep young readers entertained as they follow the simple, gently funny story.
