The Boat by Monique Felix

The Boat is a charming little hardcover book that is part of a series of re-released ‘Mouse Books’ by Swiss artist Monique Felix that star a little mouse who is seemingly trapped in the blank pages of the book, but uses its ingenuity and imagination to alter its circumstance in a delightfully unexpected manner.

I’m usually wary of wordless books, which can sometimes be too expansive in their scope and overly vague and uncertain in their story-telling; but in this case, the life-like illustrations are so evocative and expressive that words would be superfluous.

This is my favourite of the entire series, but The Wind and The Valentine are also worth checking out.
