***OCTOBER’S BOOK OF THE MONTH ***
If you ever need a book towarm your heart as the weather cools this one might be the one. For October's book of the month we welcome Vincent, a mouse with boots on his feet, hat on his head and a home on his back. A book with big heart, love, community and friendship. We are already in love with Vincent, a magical story from the pen of Jonathan Stuzman & beautifully captured by Isabelle Arsenault. We hope you find space for him in your o your shelf this month and beyond...
An enchanting tale about the expansive power of generosity. Vincent was a mouse with boots on his feet, a hat on his head, and a house on his back. When an ordinary spot on a grassy hill calls out to him, Vincent puts down the house he carries on his back and knows he's where he needs to be.
As hungry and tired travellers pass by, Vincent welcomes them into his home, making room for everyone. And even when it seems that the house is as full as it possibly can be, there is no woodland animal too big or too scary - not a ravenous cat, nor a fox, nor a whole herd of deer - that Vincent would turn it away from his warm, magical home on the hill.
Jonathan Stutzman's charming voice is enhanced by the elegant, inventive die-cut art of three-time Governor General's Award winner Isabelle Arsenault in this classic tale of a generous little mouse with a special house and an ever-expanding heart.
