Synopsis

After sneaking into a museum, three tiny mice discover that sculptures can be big or little, textured or smooth, and made with different materials. Some stand alone, others are in a group, and still others move. The mice look at the front, the back, and the sides of a slate sculpture by Barbara Hepworth. They see shapes, and shapes within shapes. They think, feel, and then create their own sculptures. Wallace has integrated photographs of real sculptures into her cut-paper artwork to point out the diverse forms that sculptures can take. She reinforces the value of creativity and art literacy in a child's life. A craft activity and short biography of Barbara Hepworth are included.
