His mouse materials


I've been making the book talk rounds of late, and this is one of the pictures I like to show of Mouse (the leading man in the story) and the basic materials he's made of: wool felt, cotton, pipe cleaners, black glass beads, and nylon thread (for whiskers).

  3. When you look at the materials it is hard to imagine that such adorable creatures are created that way. They are clearly born out of pure talent.
