About the Book

The adventures of Nalah continue! One day Nalah finds herself bored and lonesome because all of her imaginary friends have gone away on vacation. But wait – not all. Mad Tooth, the little mouse who lives in her sock drawer, is still busy munching away on her knee-highs. When she finds out why Nalah is sad, she offers to take her down through the sock drawer into a mouse metropolis. The result is a tale of wild dancing, cousins and mice, taffy and a sock monster.

My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Nalah Goes to Mad Mouse City is the second book in the Adventures of Nalah. It’s not like an other children’s book I’ve read.

Anne Sawyer-Aitch is both the author and the illustrator. Her illustrations are unique and awesome and she explains how she makes them on the last page of the book.

The story has a few lines of text but most of it is presented with quotation bubbles showing what everyone says. It is so cute!

I don’t know what child wouldn’t enjoy this book, especially with such colorful illustrations.

 

About the Author

Anne Sawyer-AitchAnne Sawyer-Aitch (pronounced like the letter “H”) is a puppeteer and stilt-walker. When she decided to create her first book, Nalah and the Pink Tiger, she began experimenting with different styles of illustration, and finally discovered a technique that uses her skills as a maker of color shadow puppets. She calls it “Illuminated Illustration”, and it involves cut-away designs, layering, and backlighting. In her capacity as a puppeteer, Anne creates puppet pieces of all kinds: parade floats, giant stilt puppets, and intricate color shadow shows. She is a MN State Arts Board Roster Artist, teaching puppetry all over the state, and has been touring around with her first book & her Nalah and the Pink Tiger show for the last two years. Nalah Goes to Mad Mouse City is her second book. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
