About the Author

Rumer Godden (1907-1998) grew up in India, where her father ran a steamship company. When her husband left her penniless in Calcutta with two daughters to raise, she started to write books to pay off her many debts. She wrote more than sixty books for adults and young adults, including The Doll's House, Impunity Jane, The Greengage Summer, and An Episode of Sparrows (also published by The New York Review Children's Collection). William P ne du Bois (1916-1993) was born in New Jersey to a family of artists and educated mostly in France. A founding editor of The Paris Review, P ne du Bois wrote some twenty-five books, many of which he also illustrated, including The Twenty-One Balloons, winner of the 1948 Newbery Medal.

Reviews

"Rumer Godden's The Mousewife, first illustrated in 1951 and reissued by The New York Review Children's Collection, is a gentle fable of liberation that the prolific British novelist and biographer, who died in 1998, wrote after escaping a loveless first marriage...Disarmingly illustrated by William Pene du Bois, this little book makes a case for empathy and daring: Why creep when you can fly?" --O, The Oprah Magazine
