baby bath


This is a scene from my book...the baby is having his bath in an eye cup, while his pet woolly bear looks on. You can see a few more pages at http://books.simonandschuster.ca/House-that-Mouse-Built/Pam-Abrams/9781935703259/graphic_excerpt. Photo by Bruce Wolf.

  5. That is so cute, the baby mouse must be absolutely tiny but so detailed, he looks like he is enjoying his bath.

  7. Hello Maggie,
    your mice look so natural that I first thought, that those are stuffed ones. But the faces are so lovely and I love also their very natural posture. And you dress them so cute - I really love them.
    Greetings, Johanna

  8. How adorable to pu the baby in an eye cup. Is the wooly bear a wooly worm?

  14. I never tire of hearing it! I'm glad you enjoy seeing them as much as I do making them.
    - California Girl, I don't know if a woolly bear is the same thing as a wooly worm, but it's the caterpillar you see in the Fall that becomes a tiger moth.

  20. How did you do it so the baby mouse looks like he's in water? I'm sure it's not real water is it?

    1. Nope, not real water...a piece of clear plastic with a baby mouse-shaped hole in the middle!
