Hyacinth Mouse

Coming soon to the Creature Kingdom series … Hyacinth Mouse and the Twirly Whirly Carnival.

Hyacinth Mouse is one of the little pupils of Houlihan Owl, a character from The Journey of Digory Mole. One day, she is on her way to school when she is met by Hattie and Matty Ratty, who persuade her to skip school and go to the Twirly Whirly Carnival where there is “No rules!” and “No school!” What can go wrong at a fun carnival? A lot can go wrong, where everything is twirly whirly, upside-down and backwards.

Here are some preview illustrations.


Hyacinth Mouse with her school friends, Juniper Bunny and Oliver Duck, learn from their teacher, Houlihan Owl.


Miss Hyacinth Mouse is on her way to school when she sees Hattie and Matty Ratty take an alternate path, one that doesn’t lead to school but leads to the Twirly Whirly Carnival.
