Book Reviews with Liv

Liv reviews a charming and popular children’s classic about an industrious architect mouse, brought to life for a new generation.

Welcome to the enchanting world of Henrietta, architect mouse. Her detailed designs are a visual feast, and will delight every imagination.

All the animals want to live in a house designed by Henrietta, because she is the only mouse in the world who understands exactly what makes a squirrel or a rabbit, a caterpillar or a frog feel at home.

This exquisitely illustrated love song to creativity will fast become a household favourite.

‘Each dwelling is lovingly furnished down to the tiniest detail.’ The New York Times

‘Each house represents not just a life but also a lifestyle.’ Slate.
