Storytime: Station Mouse with Meg McLaren

  • Golden Hare Books 68 Saint Stephen Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 5AQ United Kingdom (map)

Award winning children’s author Meg McLaren joins us with her brilliant Station Mouse, a book all about a little mouse called Maurice who must learn when rules are to be broken!

All our Book Fringe events are free and unticketed, so just come along! Children must be accompanied by an adult during this event.

The story: Maurice is the Station Mouse, and so he must follow The Station Mouse Handbook: Rule 1: A Station Mouse must remain unseen. Rule 2: A Station Mouse must never go out in the daytime. Rule 3: A Station Mouse must never approach the passengers.

Now, there’s a reason why these rules exist: people do not like mice. And if Maurice breaks the rules, even to help a little boy who has lost something very important, there’s going to be a price to pay…

Meg McLaren graduated from the prestigious MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art.
