Winston, the Mouse as Big as a House [electronic resource]

Bird, Rosita2017
Winston the mouse eats so much that he outgrows his home - and several others in turn. Deciding to do something about it, he manages to lose weight and return to his old healthy size, whereupon he can fit into his comfortable mouse hole once again. A lighthearted look at obesity with a positive message for children. This illustrated rhyming book charts the progress of overweight Winston the Mouse: he certainly loves his food! But he gets so big he has to leave his comfortable mouse hole and seek larger accommodation. Made welcome by various animals, he outgrows each home in turn until he decides enough is enough. By limiting what he eats and exercising, he is soon back in shape, and is able to move back into his own home.Written by Rosita Bird and illustrated by Doriano Strologo, this is a lighthearted story demonstrating the perils of overeating, which could help mitigate against childhood obesity without fat shaming, and ought to be on most children's reading lists.
