Around the World with Mouk: A Trail of Adventure Cover

 

Staff Pick

Dare I say that Marc Boutavant is the next Richard Scarry? With endless details, splashes of foreign words, a level of cuteness unrivalled in modern picture books, Around the World with Mouk manages to be both retro-style and way ahead of its time. Bonus: reusable stickers!

Publisher Comments:

Filled with vibrant illustrations, search-and-find challenges, and 46 reusable stickers, this oversized book is a spectacular play space for future world travelers. And Mouk is the perfect tour guide! His journey takes him all around the world, and at every stop along the way his animal friends share fascinating tidbits about local customs. Young adventure-seekers will be amazed and amused by something new with every reading.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

Review:

"In this French import, Mouk is a busy bear with a large head and tiny body, whose world feels like a Richard Scarry/manga mashup. He joins his animal friends at a chic Parisian restaurant just before leaving on a world tour ('So basically, you are dumping us,' one catlike friend comments), visiting places like Finland, the Sahara, Japan, and New York. Every page is an explosion of activity, as assorted animals converse in speech balloons and mini-dramas unfold. For extra eye candy, the book comes with a spread of reusable stickers that can be placed onto the smooth, shiny pages. Dynamic and lots of fun. All ages."
