The Princess Mouse:
A Tale of Finland
by Aaron Shepard
"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."
"The wonderfully illustrated book."
"The jewel-toned art has beautiful luminescence; the elongated, somewhat blocky look of the characters reinforces the fantasy; and the mice are downright irresistible."
