Janis Ian & Ingrid & Dieter Schubert - The Tiny Mouse
A picture book by nine-time grammy award nominee Janis Ian with illustrations from the team that created the award-winning umbrella.
With music and cd.
A songwriter since she wrote "Society's Child" at the age of 14 and a multiple Grammy winner for "At Seventeen," Janis Ian's charming and witty song written at the request of Dame Cleo Laine has now become a picture book illustrated by Ingrid and Dieter Schubert.
Janis wrote The Tiny Mouse for The Boat Project – a collaborative endeavor for which people donated wood, stories and songs that were made into a fantastical thirty-foot vessel that was part of the Queen of England's flotilla in honor of her Jubilee.
The Tiny Mouse follows the adventures of a bored mouse who decides to go to sea and narrowly escapes a grisly death. In his moment of truth, he understands that it's better to be a whole mouse at home than someone's dinner at sea.
Ingrid & Dieter Schubert, creators of The Umbrella and many other picture books, give the tiny mouse his dapper and affable appearance and bring his perilous adventures to life with plenty of sly humor.
