Description

Award-winning author and illustrator Barbara Reid incorporates found objects into her acclaimed Plasticine art to create a glorious underground adventure featuring a little mouse on a big adventure.

Nib lives deep beneath the city, in a subway station the mice call Sweetfall. By day, the trains thunder past. At night, the old mice tell stories of the mythical land known as Tunnel's End, where the air is sweet and the nests are soft, but where scary, mouse-eating monsters roam. One day, Nib sets out on a quest to find Tunnel's End. Along the way he faces danger, finds a friend . . . and discovers a place more wonderful than he ever dreamed.

"Barbara Reid's Plasticine art renders Nib's garbage-strewn subterranean world as enchanting as the starlit sky and grassy lands that ultimately greet him." —McLean's

"Reid's observant eye and magic with Plasticine make every page an intriguing work of art." —Toronto Star

"The Subway Mouse has just been nominated for a Governor General's Award in the category of kids' lit illustration, and it's plain to see why. Reid's plasticine art is remarkable . . . Reid is a master at what she does." —Books in Canada

*"Reid creates a charming, lively adventure in short, smoothly paced sentences, but it's her marvellous collage illustrations that really bring the characters and the richly imagined world to life." —Booklist, starred review

"Reid's artwork is outstanding . . . Young children will pore over the details and older children will get ideas to create their own pictures." —School Library Journal
