Mouse Woman, a shape-shifting spirit, uses her wits to help maintain the healthy balance of nature in the world.

Perseus Publishing
In the late 1970s, celebrated children’s author Christie Harris published three books known as the Mouse Woman Trilogy. These witty, well-researched versions of Native legends feature a central character, Mouse Woman, who is a narnauk ? a supernatural being who takes the shape of both a mouse and a prim and proper human grandmother. Mouse Woman’s role is to keep order between other narnauks and humans, especially young humans, who are often led astray by the narnauks. The crafty Mouse Woman uses tact and more than a little trickery to set things right. A unique and wonderful character, Mouse Woman is always enterprising, but also sympathetic ? and, of course, always successful. This new omnibus edition contains all of Harris’ Mouse Woman stories, together with Douglas Tait’s striking original artwork. Together, they offer a fascinating look at the world of the Haida people of the Pacific Northwest.
