Mouse House!

Mouse Mansion reading

For those of you who share my love of little things, here is a mouse house that is deliciously diminutive, and, well, kind of big. The teetering tower of rooms, packed with tiny details, is the creation of Dutch artist Karina Schaapman.

If you feel the need to scrutinize this warren of miniatures as I did, pick up the recently published U.S. edition of the Mouse Mansion. The book includes stories about two mice friends, Sam and Julia, but I can’t quite bother with words when I just want to look and look. In fact, I like the end papers best, with its view of ten of the rooms. I wouldn’t mind if the whole book were simply that: an inventory of the hundred little cubbies and the treasures they hold.

  1. I wish I had this book in front of me right now, because it sounds dreamy to just space out on at ALL the tiny details. Imagine if they did an inventory style video with the mice narrating their treasures in tiny voices! 😀
