I can’t help it. It started around 1995. I blame Brambly Hedge for this malady.

Malady:

I LOVE vintage books on mice and their houses.

Cure:

Collect them!

My vintage mouse book collection

I wrote about my absolute treasure and favourite, House by Mouse (Also known as Need a house? Call Ms Mouse in the US) by George Mendoza. Discovered in 2007 at a Salvos for $1.99.
