Staff Reviews

The poems in this charming volume have strong rhythms and solid rhyme patterns. Victorian-clad mice going about their domestic duties are the subject of these narrative poems, accompanied by lovely watercolor illustrations. — Jessica Wood


Long out of print, these poems about mice busily going about their domestic activities—baking bread, reading by candlelight—are accompanied by quaint, cozy watercolors
Come and visit Nibbling Village. It's a secret place inhabited by Victorian-attired mice who spend their time cooking, sewing, cleaning, and, of course, nibbling. With wonderully atmospheric and old-fashioned illustrations bringing the village of Nibbling to life, these tales are perfect for fans of Beatrix Potter.
