Editorial Reviews

"A cute cumulative tale about a group of animal friends trying to figure whose car they have found. If you liked "Whose Hat is That?" and "Who Will Dance With Little Mouse?" you will enjoy What a Nice Car!" - Erin Crites (Librarian)

"Mouse has found a car and asks his friends to help him find the owner. This book is a super simple read with fun illustrations and a positive message about friendship in the end." - Tara Hutson (Librarian)

"Little children love animals and this book has wonderful characters and illustrations, and has a good message. Although it says this book is for 3 years and up, for the content of friends and teamwork, my 2 year old loved it." - Marsha Spencer

Unwrapping the book

This sweet book was authored by the award-winning author of "Everyone is Yawning" Anita Bijsterbosch.  This fun, simple story is about a little mouse who finds an abandoned car at the side of the road.  Is it abandoned or lost he wonders?  He takes it upon himself to find its rightful owner.  

His curious animal friends join in the hunt to once again reinstate the car with its possessor.  Whoever could be missing their car?  Can the animal detectives solve the mystery? 

This story is about owning, perseverance, friendship and sharing.  The illustrations are clear, uncluttered and vibrant which will appeal to that targeted age group.  This positive story teaches to never give up and that kindness reaps its rewards.  I highly recommend this book.

Meet the creator of the book

I'm Anita Bijsterbosch. I was born in 1961 in The Netherlands. My entire life, I have loved reading. As a child, I could spend hours thumbing through books, looking at the pictures and hoping I could one day make such beautiful illustrations myself. I studied the images down to the smallest detail and made up my own little stories to go along with them.
After high school, I took drawing and painting lessons in small galleries in my neighborhood. And I learned a lot from drawing and painting books. But I also mastered many techniques simply by experimenting with them on my own.
When my children were still young, I read them a bedtime story every night. I rediscovered that some picture books are real pieces of art. That’s when I got the ambition to make my very own picture books.
I was remarked by the jury of the Key Colours International Illustrators Award 2012. The book Whose Hat is That? was published by Clavis Publishing and every book I have made since has been even more successful.
