Blog > The Postal Adventures of Morris Mouse

There’s no place like home… unless you take a tumble and the doctor orders you to stay put for a few months, right? This is what happened to Lynn’s friend Lucy earlier this year. To cheer her up, Lynn enlisted the help of her “other friend” Morris Mouse, who agreed to send Lucy some postcards or letters from his travels.

Turns out, Morris is a great artist, and his missives are beautifully illustrated and filled with witty humour! Have a look:

The Postal Adventures of Morris Mouse The Postal Adventures of Morris Mouse

Morris visits some of his friends around the world, joining cricket matches, conservation studies, or just distracting the odd cat. Everywhere he goes, there seems to be an adventure waiting for him, and he writes Lucy about it on old postcards, letters, book pages and covers… anything he can get his tiny paws on! :)

The Postal Adventures of Morris Mouse

You can catch up with Morris’ delightful missives on the blog Lynn keeps for him at morrismouse.wordpress.com or even get in touch, if you’d like.

We look forward to his next adventures and wish a speedy recovery to Lucy as well! :)

The artist said, the more people follow her blog the more likely these cards (and letters) are to become a book ... I stumbled about her blog a few weeks ago (one, two?) and I begged her to turn this into a book!

It reminds me actually of how I used to to play "fairies" with my daughters when they were babies . They used to play in the back garden , making see-saws and slippery slides and playgrounds for the fairies, out of cardboard and paper etc. The next day the child would be delighted when the postman delivered a post card from the fairies, saying what fun they had had playing in the playground, and thanking the child for making them such a lovely playground ..

How wonderful for someone to receive such beautiful and intricately illustrated postcards with a continuing storyline about the adventures of a cute and mischievous mouse called Morris.
I'm sure this will really help to speed up Lucy's recovery.
All the best to Lucy & Morris Mouse.
