‘Mouse Guard: The Owlhen Caregiver’ will collect three new stories.
Award-winning creator David Petersen will return to the fantasy world of Mouse Guard in July with Mouse Guard: The Owlhen Caregiver, which collects three different stories.
“I’m so pleased that readers get to walk back into the Mouse Territories, be accompanied by familiar Guardmice, and encounter snakes, owls, wolves, rams, otters, toads, and foxes again. Short stories are magical things. Despite their size, they are exactly the right shape to hold large messages of morality and virtue,” said Petersen. “The common themes in these stories are ones of hope and of compassion, of service and the wellbeing of others. And every world could use more of that.”

“For the Fall 1152 poster I needed to re-create the events of that book in one image that summed everything up,” he wrote on his blog. “No problem, right? Harder than you think. I started with the idea that I should have the 3 main mouse characters as well as the snake (everyone still remembers that scene from the first issue). So, I sketched on copy paper, Lieam, Saxon and Kenzie with the plan to put Lieam front and center, with the other two either side of him. The snake would loom up over them from behind.”
