House By Mouse

House By Mouse by George Mendoza (with illustrations by Doris Smith)




'This is Henrietta sitting at her drawing board and working deep into the night, without even stopping to nibble at a cheese sandwich. She is designing one of her world-famous houses.
All the animals want to live in a house designed by Henrietta, because she is the only mouse in the world who understands exactly what makes a squirrel or a rabbit, a caterpillar or a frog feel at home.'


'Bookshelves, a fireplace and some carefully chosen furnishings turned Owl's bare tower into a comfortable home. But what pleased Owl most was the telescope platform Mouse put up for nightly star-gazing sessions.'
