The Mouse Exhibition

With the final Mousehunter book pretty much signed off now, I’ve started thinking about the launch. This time round it will coincide with me becoming a dad, at the start of January, so free time is going to be a bit on the short side. However, there are a couple of things in the pipeline, first and foremost being a Mouse Exhibition.

Mousebeard’s Revenge revolves around the International Mouse Exhibition, which, for the first time in many years, is taking place in Old Town. With this in mind, I thought it would be nice to create my own mouse exhibition, potentially something that could be boxed up and travel – maybe to bookshops around London (this is wishful thinking on my part, but I’m going to give it a go).

Planning is in the formative stages, so to get the ball rolling, I’m calling out for people who might like to help me create this thing. Time is not on my side at the minute, so I’m attempting to create an avalanche of mice by using hired hands.

If you’re handy and might like to make a mouse, whether it’s a little plasticine model, stitched or made of card, i want to hear from you. In return, you’ll definitely get invited to the launch (still planning that, likely to be in Crystal Palace…), and you’ll also get something from me in return, be that a signed copy of the book, or maybe a mouse of your choice drawn by me.

Either leave me a comment here, or drop me an email (contact address is at the top).

Be lovely to get your help and send the Mousehunter Trilogy off with a proper big mousey bang.

  • I just finished (five minutes ago) reading The Curse of Mousebeard to my 7 year-old (on the eve of her 8th birthday). Then I went looking to find the title of the next book online (for surely there must be one with an end like that!) and lo and behold, I stumbled upon your blog! Congrats on the impending dadhood, and I’d love to cast you a glass mouse for the launch. I’m tempted by a glowing blue Methuselah Mouse. What do you think?

    • Cast a glass mouse? That sounds amazing. I’d be totally gobsmacked – I could put a little LED light under it too? That really would be something else.

      Please do email me.
