About the Author

Karina Schaapman is a Dutch wife, mother and politician. Mouse Mansion is based on the real-life Mouse Mansion which was conceived and created by Karina. The mansion is made from cardboard boxes and papier-mache, and it has more than a hundred rooms, corridors and outdoor spaces. For the interior, Karina used vintage fabrics from the fifties, sixties and seventies plus various types of waste material. Mouse Mansion includes many autobiographical moments from Karina's life as well as her husband's. Karina says: 'I was inspired by bringing up my own four (now grown) children ... Their development made me see what is important to children, such as building huts, sharing secrets, love and being looked after.'

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
