Product Details


"Rumer Godden’s The Mousewife, first illustrated in 1951 and reissued by The New York Review Children’s Collection, is a gentle fable of liberation that the prolific British novelist and biographer, who died in 1998, wrote after escaping a loveless first marriage…Disarmingly illustrated by William Pene du Bois, this little book makes a case for empathy and daring: Why creep when you can fly?" —O, The Oprah Magazine
