Around The World With Mouk by Marc Boutavant


Brand Tate Publishing

Meet Mouk, a mellow little bear who takes his buddies by surprise when he sets off on an around-the-world adventure that will inspire kids to travel the world and discover different cultures.  Bursting with colour and a zillion authentic details, Around the World with Mouk follows our loveable, laid-back hero as he travels through 11 vividly illustrated countries, meeting new friends and learning about new places.  From every place he sends a postcard to his friends at home.

Children delight in discovering a world of realistic details on every page, and learn fun facts from the postcards.  The front endpapers feature Mouk getting ready to leave and say goodbye to his friends, while the back endpapers show his return home and include extra anecdotes about his travels.  And to make sure the travelling bear is never lost, readers and pre-readers can follow his journey across the map on the back of the book.  An optional sticker game lets children learn more about each country in a fun, interactive way.

Marc Boutavant was born in France in 1970.  He is both an author and an illustrator.  His work springs from a wry observation of life and the interaction of his friends and children, and their quirks of personality, mannerisms and reactions to situations are transposed onto his characters.  He has produced work for a large range of clients, including the The GuardianNew York Times, Martha Stewart Kids and The New Yorker.
