The Mouse Mansion is a creation by Karina Schaapman (1960, The Netherlands). In 2008 she decided that she wanted to write a children's book. She wasn't going to illustrate the books with drawings, instead she decided to photograph diorama's. It took her three years to build the first Mouse Mansion that is now on display in the Public Library in Amsterdam. For every book that followed, Karina built more Mouse Mansions diorama's, such as a theatre, a fun fair and a harbor. Would you like to learn more about Karina and het creation?
