Description

When the Highland Village Museum adopted and moved Malagawatch Church across the Bras d’Or lake in 2003, children’s author-illustrator Caroline Stellings asked herself: “What about the church mice?” The answer is an imaginative tale of The Malagawatch Mice who, after living under the church for generations, learn that they are about to lose the floorboards from over their heads. Ms. Stellings’ soft watercolour illustrations and delightful rhyming narrative follow the Malagawatch Mice – and the church – to their new home in Iona.
