Review: The Little Minces by Lauren Lynne illustrations by Michael Hemmingsen

October 1, 2019

About the Book:

It is a time of kings and wizards. It is a time of pie… mincemeat pie, that is. This is the story of Scamper, the mince, and his adventures in a magical kingdom. It is a tale of fleeing and hiding and of solving your problems in a way that helps everyone. It is about making friends in places you don’t expect and sharing your ideas to make your corner of the world a better place.

My thoughts:

Awwww, I love this picture book. The Little Minces is a fabulous story about how a great grandfather Mince finds a way to protect his future offspring from being the prime ingredient in the King’s favorite pie. Mince Pies. Its a tale of searching for answers, looking after family, and of cleverly convincing an entire kingdom not to kill you for food! A cute tale with a nice message and an even nicer treat at the end.

The pictures are gloriously colorful and beautifully detailed.

It’s a lovely story to read to your children (or grandchildren).
