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.

This book made me want to be an architect from the age of about eight, until I took architecture in high school and discovered that I would also have to create sewage plans in addition to cooler things, like general floor plans. Each spread is a different house that Ms. Mouse designed for one of her animal friends, and they are fantastic. The illustrations are very detailed, so you can look into all of the nooks and crannies and see what Ms. Mouse supplied. Awesome, awesome book.

I purchased this book for my daughter when she was about 8 years old.
She somehow lost it amongst various moves. She is now an Architecture student and is 28 years old.
All she wanted for Christmas was for me to track down a copy of this book.
So hard to find, but I found it on Amazon. She is extremely pleased. Twas the best ever Christmas present she said.
Amazon comes through again, finding the almost impossible. thank you.

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!

In 1982 I selected this book as a special Christmas treat following holiday luncheon with my sister, mother and grandmother at The Walnut Room in Chicago's Marshall Field's store on State Street. It still inspires me to this day and I cherish my copy as if were an Austen first edition. The details, the clever home layouts, the imagination is not matched these days!

Format: Hardcover
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.

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.
