The Story

Fey Mouse is the story of a large and clumsy cat born into a family of highly talented mice. It’s a story about acceptance and coping successfully with being different. Fay Mouse was originally published in 1988 by Nelson and printed also in Middle East and Asia as it was chosen for richness of language and illustrations.

Fey Mouse is authored by Hazel Edwards a beloved award winning Australian Author with more than 200 hundreds books under her belt and It’s illustrated by award winning artist Kilmeny Niland who illustrated, among other titles, the popular ‘An Aussie Night Before Christmas’ and ‘Two Bad Teddies’.

Hazel Edwards says about Fey Mouse:

A young reader emailed saying she wanted to be a ‘feymouse (famous) Arthur (author) ‘ when she grew up. So, I created a large and clumsy cat born into a highly talented family of mice. ‘Fey’ is an old style word which means quirky or unusual. And the unfortunate cult of the ‘celeb’ , of being famous for being famous, rather than solving a problem for others, has always intrigued me. ‘Fey’ is all of us. We can identify with gentle clumsiness and good intentions.

‘Feymouse’ is like my ‘There’s a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake’ in that it has an enduring theme of compassionate support of a friend , and is deceptively simple but has symbolic sub text for adults too.
