David Peterson draws brilliant mice. Mice with swords. Mice with a brilliant story of folklore, myth and adventure.
Reading Mouse Guard is a wonderfully delicious experience, not only for the story but for the visual beauty that the pages of the book display in front of you. Tiny characters with the bravery of ten men and David’s artwork is just adorable; Charmingly warm colour palettes mixed with beautiful lines create a heart warming experience.
In 2008 David won the ‘Best Publication for Kids’ Eisner Award for the Mouse Guard comic series and has since published his first picture book, Snowy Valentine. Snowy Valentine may not have many words, but you don’t need them when you can tell a story in such a sublime way with just pictures.
