Mouseland is on the road!  

The diorama is a scene from my latest picture book, City Mouse, Country Mouse; a miniature city full of felt mice and other creatures going about their business among stores made of coffeepots, suitcase apartment buildings and tin can water towers. It is built almost entirely with scavenged and recycled materials.  In the evening, tiny lights illuminate the windows and lampposts.

Traveling Mouseland will be visiting West coast venues throughout the year, where I will also be doing book events. Come and visit!

  1. It’s great to see the different views. Since I can’t visit it, at least I can see these and imagine! Thank you for sharing your wonderful creations.

  2. Such a fabulous idea, Maggie! Hooray! Enjoy every minute!

  3. Maggie, Your art work, which I got the privilege to see at Scraps, inspired me to write a short story. The city mouse and country mouse work is a thrill to see. So blessed to get to see it.

  5. Hello Maggie,

    I had the treat of seeing your amazing display at Treehouse Books in Ashland. It’s magical and wonderful. Inspired me to get 2 books for little readers and keep 1 for me. Cheers!

  6. Hello,
    Love love it! Thank you for sharing..
    Could you please tell me where to find the pipe cleaners that you use please?

    Thank you ��

    1. Hi Angelica,
      I get the white cotton ones that are actually used to clean pipes. They come in a yellow cardboard sleeve, and you can buy them anyplace tobacco is sold.
