Great Big Things by Kate Hoefler - ADVISABLE

Hoefler, Kate Great Big Things.  PICTURE BOOK.  Illustrated by Noah Klocek.  Houghton Mifflin, 2017.  $18. 9780544774773

A tiny mouse has an epic voyage to bring a single crumb back for a very special someone. 
It is the illustrations that captivated me from the very first.  I am not normally drawn to the abstract, but there is magic in Klocek’s work.  The mouse’s determination shines forth and the majesty of the scenery includes it, rather than eclipsing.
