This is the second book in the series by Scottish author Joan Porter. It is written in verse that rolls off the tongue in an easy and memorable way. She used to recite the verses to her own children as they were growing up and also in Pre-school playgroups, so they have been well-tried and tested. This volume tells of the party pranks of Terry Tiddlemouse and his brothers Snitch and Snatch. Other friends are introduced including Mollie Mole with her claws so long and sharp, who blunders in the daylight but is nimble in dark or Hector Hog who sniffs and snorts looking for his dinner, and without whose spines hedgehogs would look thinner. Jessica Excells illustrations are a delight and capture the fun and humour of the verse. Kids will love the variety of character while also learning about the creatures who inhabit our countryside. Like the first, this volume has the makings of a minor classic.
