Little Mouse Series sold to Russia’s Lenizdat

Russian publisher Lenizdat purchased the rights for all 6 books in the Little Mouse series.

Little Mouse is a toddler and doesn’t always behave exactly as Mummy Mouse would wish. Sweet and delightfully relatable stories are complemented by detailed, classic illustrations.

Riikka Jäntti, a 2003 graduate of Helsinki’s School of Art and Design, now part of Aalto University, is a Helsinki-based illustrator and author who has created art for both nonfiction and fairy tale books for children. Her first children’s book was published in 2005.

This series is a good example of excellent children literature, entertaining and rather enlightening at the same time. And of course, we were charmed by these funny and touching illustrations. These are basically the books we always choose for our children and grandchildren.
– Christina Dobrovolskaya, Lenizdat Publishing House, Russia
