Frances is a primary school teacher who first realised her love for writing with the poem, 'My Dad's Milkfloat', when she was six. She is an award-winning academic, a trained chidren's literacy specialist, and winner of the Bloomsbury and National Literacy Trust short story prize 2017. She lives with her family and a big-eared dog in Derbyshire. And when she is not writing, you'll find her in the forest pretending to be a dragon with her daughters.
A hungry little mouse strolls through very prettily illustrated countryside scenes, reminiscent of favourite folk tales, and is lucky enough to discover four juicy apples. So far, so good, but then she runs into a bear, a bear who holds that might is right and who refuses to share. Undeterred, the clever mouse finds a way to eat her apples and to persuade her new friend of the joy of sharing. Written in rhyme this is particularly pleasing to read aloud and children will love the story of a lesson learned and friendship formed.
