My absolute favorite book as a child.
M. Reed
All she wanted for Christmas was for me to track down a copy of this book.
Rosalind
The detailed illustrations were captivating and the story was whimsical.

I still have this book tucked away for potential grandchildren. My daughter and I not only enjoyed the intricate detail of each animal's home, but we also loved the poetry of the words, which I still recall. "Owl, night's glider under moon's eye.." or "See what Piggy money will buy?" This book should be reprinted. Why has it not been? Where is George Mendoza? I would buy 10 copies if I ever found them, to save for gifts to friends' children.

Please, someone in the publishing business . . . check out the reviews here . . . and think about reissuing this book. My friend and I loved this book and it also became a victim of being loaned or lost. (She blames me, I blame her . . . it's ugly!) Everywhere I've looked for old copies, this little book runs $150-350. My friend also went to UC Berkeley, and became an architect and this book played a key role in her later interest.

Well I can say enough good things about this book, It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember, it as the first present I ever gave to my best friend Kristin, I think it was her 3rd or 4th birthday. Now one of my close friends has become a teacher and I would love for her to share the joy of this wonderful book in her classroom! I am trying Ginny!

A friend gave this to my daughter about 14 years ago. I have fond memories of she and I spending lots of time looking at the minute details of each of the animal's homes and thoroughly enjoying the illustrator's vision of how each dwelling would have actually looked based on Ms. Mouse's plans. We seemed to discover new items in certain houses that we overlooked in previous readings. Unfortunately, I loaned it to someone with kids who has never returned it - can't remember who it was. I'd really like to find two copies of this book - one to share with my grandchildren (hopefully, not until my 19-year old finishes college!) and for a friend's daughter who is in her freshman year studying at UofC Berkely to be an architect. It's a great book to read and visually explore with your child(ren) cuddled up in a corner somewheres.

Format: Hardcover
The story of Henrietta, the architect, is way beyond charming. She designs homes for a squirrel, trout, cat, mole, fox, lizard, owl, pig, and many more-- all to suit their personalities and lifestyles. (Henrietta is a very creative mouse.) The illustrations by Doris Susan Smith bring Henrietta's creations alive and make you want to study them for hours! It's a beautiful book and DEFINITELY needs to be re-issued.

Format: Hardcover
As the first book I ever owned it still may be the one that has inspired me the most. What more could anyone want other than the story of a mouse architecht building elaborate and personal houses for her forest friends. Frank Lloyd Wright would be proud. The pictures alone can keep you entertained for a day, especially if you're 8 years old and home from school.

My absolute favorite book as a child. My dad is an architect, and he used to read this book to me at bed time. I brought it in several times in a row for show-in-tell until I was pulled aside by the teacher and asked to bring something else. I lost my copy in a typhoon when I lost the rest of my house in high school. I hope the publisher reissues it!

My parents read this book to me when I was but a wee lad, and I remember being fascinated by the intricate little homes and by the way each house fit the different animal's personality. I believe it is what inspired me to be an engineer at UC San Diego!! I want to find the book for my children, it is a great good night book.
