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.

'The Shrew with the Flu' carries the timely message about caring for our environment and how little acts of kindness and consideration can make a huge difference. A lovely story to read and look at for kids of all ages." - Amanda Prowse; "A story of respecting nature and appreciating our surroundings, told confidently by an exciting and up-and-coming author." - David Litchfield; "Knowing how hard it is to communicate the effects of the climate crisis to young kids without making them fearful of the world they live in, makes this book a great entry point for some of the messages we need to get across to the next generation. A beautifully depicted story to show that what we take from nature, we must always try to give back." - Tolmeia Gregory; "The kids loved reading 'The Shrew with the Flu', it carries the timely message about caring for the environment and how little acts of kindness and consideration can make a huge difference, and I love that a young aspiring entrepreneur is following his dream in having the book published! I highly recommend it as a lovely read with the kids..." - Sara Davies MBE
