Oili Tanninen


In this delightful story, a mouse named Hippu invites a homeless dog named Heppu to share the simple pleasures of everyday life. Hippu and Heppu – and some friendly mice – shop, eat, go for a walk, take baths, and go for a ride in the car! With its bold, graphic colors and cutout shapes, Hippu feels as fresh and contemporary today as it did on first publication in 1967. Written and illustrated by one of Finland’s most cherished artists and translated here for the first time in English, Hippu is destined to become a worldwide classic at last.
