My book , "Life is a Piece of Cheese" has 55 pages of pen and ink illustrations depicting mice doing every day things such as attending the races, camping, playing rugby, skiing etc.! There are no words as the book is designed for every age group and allows young minds to use their fantastic imaginations to create stories of their own. The book costs $20.


Currently it can be purchased directly from me, from "Jessica's Book Nook" in Thornbury,  "Great Books & Cafe' (Williams Mill) in Williamsford, Hwy 6., "Torn Pages" in Stayner,  "Georgian Bay Books" in Midland,  and "Booklore" in Orangeville.
