Little Terry Tiddlemouse and His Countryside Friends Summary

Little Terry Tiddlemouse and His Countryside Friends by Joan Porter

This is a beautiful book and could well become a minor classic. Joan Porter used to recite these verses to her own children as they grew up, so they have been well tried out. The verses introduce a host of characters from the countryside including: Terry Tiddlemouse with brothers Snitch and Snatch who live together happily in their house that's made of thatch, Fergus Frog too busy to drink tea from a cup so drinks it from the spout, and Hector Hog who without his spines would look a lot thinner. Kids will learn about the creatures that inhabit our countryside as well as enjoy the wit and humour of the verses and delightful illustrations. It's a bedtime treat and, like the mice, kids will want to huddle and cuddle and become a mousey muddle!

About Joan Porter

Joan Porter will be 85 at the date of publication. She was born in Kilberry on the west coast of Mid-Argyll, and moved to East Loch Tarbert when she married. Here Joan and Bill brought up their four daughters. The verses began life as stories about the countryside creatures whom Joan knew as a youngster. Over time, the stories turned into verses. Joan did not write them down until she became a supervisor for the Tarbert playgroup. Husband Bill always wanted to see the verses published, but life always took the family on to the next step and Joan was too modest to pursue it herself. Now Bill has passed on, and Joan lives in sheltered housing in Bearsden Glasgow, where she is surrounded by her daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren. The book came into being thanks to Joan's daughters, who wanted to celebrate their mother's life and make sure her verse was published. The verses recollect their very happy childhood.
