About this project
This book is the first one in a series of stories about a big underground city called Mousetropolis, where mice try to copy or even surpass people's accomplishments. Mia is a little mouse who gets a Magic Book on her birthday. Like many children she learns from her mistakes and becomes a better "person". This story will help your children use their imagination, be loyal friends and teach them responsibility. Kids and adults will enjoy reading it.
Tatiana: "Why mice? The story idea came from my childhood memories. A mouse appeared every time I played the piano. She loved music! It sparked my imagination, but I never considered writing a book until recently."
Andre: "We decided to do all the illustrations photographically which makes the book rather unique.I photographed live mice in various situations. It was quite a challenge! I learned a lot about mouse behavior. We actually adopted a few mice so I could control lighting, movement and positions of the mice. They were not listening to my directions!!
This letter-sized hard cover book has color images on front and back cover, and 16 pages of amazing illustrations. We also have plans to translate it to Spanish.
I want to thank NASA for the spectacular images that I incorporated into these illustrations."
Your support will help us print 2-3000 books, do some marketing, advertising, pay for ISBN #'s,copyright application. Anything raised above will go towards printing more books and marketing.
