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.'
