Ages: 4 to 8
Retelling of the ancient Chinese mouse bride tale of a father mouse who travels to find the perfect husband for his cherished daughter only to learn that a mouse is the best match. The collage technique with silhouette mice is spread onto a strip of heavy coated cardboard and folded into an accordion format. When it is opened wide, it reads like a story mural. To add to the uniqueness of the presentation, the story is told in white Chinese characters on a black background across the back.
