The House that Mouse Built

The House that Mouse Built

Photographs by: Bruce Wolf
For Ages: 3 and up
Welcome to the painstakingly crafted teeny, tiny world of Mouse.

Mouse and Musetta are the sweetest pair of rodents you’ll ever lay eyes on. This is the story of how they met and came to live in a fabulously turned-out loaf of bread. Each lovingly crafted scene is packed with incredible details—from the salt shaker end table to the walnut shell cabinets (with hinges!) to the postage stamp art. Really, how could Musetta resist popping in for a nibble of the cheese that lay on the table, that stood in the house…that Mouse built?
