Synopsis

A Most Mysterious Mouse by Giovanna Zoboli

It seems fair to say that there have never been as many mice in any book as there are in this one! This may well be because the protagonist, a singular and most ambitious cat, has promised himself that by the age of eighteen he will have imagined ONE MILLION MICE! Every stripe of mouse is imagined here, except for one-the most mysterious mouse! Giovanna Zoboli is a writer and publisher. In 2004, together with Paolo Canton, she founded Topipittori. Lisa D'Andrea lives and works in Padua. She spent her childhood in northern Italy and has devoted herself to drawing and painting ever since.

Reviews

Touching on themes of solitude, creativity, and obsession, it's a story that's alternately elusive and philosophical, thanks to Shugaar's mischievous translation and D'Andrea's sly, sleek, and sumptuous drawings. -- Publishers Weekly
