Mouse in House
This work for children, adapted from the book by Elizabeth Spires, is about a mouse who forms a friendship with reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The mouse’s life changes forever when a gust of wind blows one of Emily’s poems her way. Moved by Emily’s evocative words that capture her own feelings, the mouse becomes determined to be a poet herself.

The Big Meow
The Big Meow, adapted from the book by Elizabeth Spiresis the story of an ever-hopeful fluffball who desperately wants to belong to the band of neighborhood cats, but is ostracized for a “loud as a lion’s roar” meow.  The Big Meow is a story of hope, disappointment, courage and the need for belonging.  These simple themes are part of every neighborhood, but in this wonderful tale told through the experiences of  Little Cat, a potential weakness is a unique strength.
