House by Mouse

"All the animals want to live in a house designed by Henrietta, because she is the only mouse in the world who understands exactly what makes a squirrel or a rabbit, a caterpillar or a frog feel at home. In short, Henrietta is a genius."

A beloved children's book of mine where moles enjoy croquet, squirrels live in houses that look like spaceships and spiders play jazz to attract their dinner.
I would spend hours trying to think of the perfect combination of the houses, a place where I would like to live.

"Fox is an untidy fellow. All he wanted from Mouse was a... sort of place where he could relax after a hard days scheming and running."

Book by George Mendoza, beautifully illustrated by Doris Smith.
