Flittens™ Books & Bisques

Small winged mice came aboard the flying Tiger on one of her many voyages–no one knows exactly when. The mice bred rapidly and soon infested the ship, then the manor grounds and house.

Habitat: The Mice seem to adapt readily (and cheerfully) to any available habitat.

Habits: The Mice are very imaginative and playful creatures. They are also charismatic; they seem to be able to persuade other woodland creatures to go along with their plans. For example–beetle racing. The Mice have formed a relationship with beetles.(Usually ladybugs or a souped-up variety of potato bug with brightly-colored racing stripes 6 on the floor. They feed the bugs on honey and other foods high in sugar content to provide the quick bursts of energy needed for sprinting.) The Mice have also been observed forming odd alliances with butterflies. They appear to have taught themselves to read and have a most wide and startling range of knowledge. They are always good company and have a wicked sense of humor. They are good mimics and sometimes appear to copy human behavior.

Likes: A good time, mischief, cheese, cheesecake, cookies of any kind and gossip.

Dislikes: Being caged. Slow beetles.

Migration: The Mice don’t migrate. They inhabit the manor house and grounds year ‘round.

Laura Von Stetina
Laura's yard is filled with the flowers and plants she grows as subjects for her botanical and wildlife paintings. Her house is populated with the stray animals she has always welcomed. One notable was a stray cat that bestowed the family with kittens. Laura was so taken with their special skills that she observed them keenly, often sketching them in detail. While checking on them early one morning, she was amazed to discover they had sprouted wings! Thus was the inspiration for her series of "Flittens" which are imaginately enchanting as well as botanically and anatomically correct.
Laura's impressive credentials include a solo exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, participation in exhibits at the Cleveland Museum of Art, numerous awards from the Cleveland Society of Nature Artists among many others. Laura's love of nature has also included teaching and natural history museum work.
