​The Princess Mouse:

A Tale of Finland
by Aaron Shepard
Atheneum, 2003

 

​​​"Gore's distinctively angled figures deepen the story's folktale feel. Scandinavian sun often shines on the characters' faces while the rest of the scene stays in chilly shadow; the northern spring can almost be felt." 
                           -Publishers Weekly

"The wonderfully illustrated book." 
                        -Children's Literature

"The jewel-toned art has beautiful luminescence; the elongated, somewhat blocky look of the characters reinforces the fantasy; and the mice are downright irresistible."
