Title: Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears
Illustrator: Emily Gravett
Winning Year: 2008

Little Mouse is afraid of almost everything. We learn about all his phobias, from his fear of creepy crawlies to his fear of clocks, dogs, cats and shadows. The only thing that makes him feel better is that human beings actually seem to be afraid of him!
