Paperback / Softback




Rustling under a leafy tree,

A greedy shrew could hardly see…

Shrew has spent his entire life using only one sense to hunt – his sense of smell. Until a horrible case of the flu forces him to make use of the rest of his senses. Once he hones the art of hunting – using more than just his nose – he can’t help but gobble up every snack in sight. The question is, can Shrew restore the forest he so dearly loves?

‘The Shrew with The Flu’ is a wonderfully warm and endearing story by budding author Will Hamilton-Davies, created in partnership with illustrator Jennifer Davison. The combination of rhyming verse and rich, vibrant illustrations, makes this environmentally themed story the perfect read-aloud for every family.

While on the surface ‘The Shrew with The Flu’ is an endearing story about a shrew’s quest for food, it also holds a powerful message about greed and empathy, a message that fosters love and respect for our natural world.
