KIWI Magazine Review:

How much is enough? How much is too much? Meet the magpie, the collector of all things shiny. This book tells the tale of stuff in a sweet, simple way.  The illustrations are fantastic and whimsical, and perfectly accompany the text.  We’d bump the recommended age from 4 down to 2.

Book Description

Age Level: 4 and up | Grade Level: P and up

One magpie,

lots of stuff,

and a few friendly mice

show us that less is


This innovative and spare picture book asks the question: When is MORE more than

enough? Can a team of well-intentioned mice save their friend from hoarding too

much stuff? With breathtaking illustrations from the award-winning Brian Lies, this

book about conservation wraps an important message in a beautiful package.
