About the Author

Michael Bond (Author)
Michael Bond is the much celebrated author of Paddington Bear. He was born in Berkshire in 1926 and he served in the Royal Air Force and the British Army before working as a cameraman for BBC TV. In 2015 he was awarded the CBE for his services to children's literature.

Emily Sutton (Illustrator)
Emily Sutton studied illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and has illustrated many picture books including Clara Button, Tiny- The Invisible World of Microbes and The Christmas Eve Tree. She has also created designs for Fortnum & Mason, Bettys Tea Rooms and the Victoria and Albert Museum. She lives and works in York in a house full of doll's houses.


This riches to rags to riches again story is utterly charming. Mr and Mrs Mice and their thirteen children live happily in a dolls’ house in a grand castle; apart from having one wall missing, their house is rather grand too, with plenty of room for them all. In Emily Sutton’s gorgeous illustrations their home is full of little details that will fascinate young readers; not since Beatrix Potter either, have mice looked so fine, and yet so very mouse-like, in smart hats and coats. The adventure unfolds perfectly over the length of the book as the mice lose their home, but happily regain it, and there’s a lovely rhythm to the story, told with such apparent ease and so much skill by Michael Bond. A treat!
