Markus Mouse by Maria Majewska

I’ve been enjoying looking at Maria Majewska’s illustrations of Markus Muis se Nuwe Huis ( Marcus Mouse’s New House). I like the way she uses pattern and treats all surfaces with equal attention.  And I like how she draws everything with such respect for what it is.

The story is about Marcus Mouse’s search for a comfortable home.  He starts off in his overcrowded family home:

I love this image of the Cat’s eye peering in at the mouse family:

But Markus has some trouble finding a safe home.  He tries an owls nest:

Somebody’s slipper:

And a lot of other places, including a heap of dolls:

Until at last, he finds a place that feels right:

And he snuggles down in his bed of newspaper shreds:

Well, its late and I’m yawning.  Good night.
