Maggie Rudy makes mice. I love saying that—it just sounds so cool: “Maggie makes mice.” But what Maggie does is way cooler than only creating fabulous felt mice; she’s created Mouseland, a whole world of mice and their companion animals and everything they need to exist, from tiny working lamps to actual books to stoves to—well, you get the idea. If you were ever a fan of The Borrowers, you know what I’m talking about here: a fabulous miniature world full of things found and gathered and repurposed. Maggie is a complete joy to talk to; enthusiastic and interesting. You can find out more about her and about Mouseland by going to her blog at Mouse Houses. You can find her first book, The House that Mouse Built, here.
