A ridiculously wacky and hugely entertaining picture book jam-packed with detail. You will find yourself poring over the pages for hours. Mi lives in Museum City. With so many museums to visit, you would think Mi would have lots to do. But he's bored and lonely; the city is full of museums about uninteresting things and the people who own these uninteresting things. But a beautiful sound leads him to Yu (a big, tall thing) and together they try to persuade the Mayor to open museums about some of the more enjoyable things in life, such as "The Museum of Starlit Benches Arranged at Different Heights for Pebble-Dropping and Other Fun Things". Will they succeed and revolutionise Museum City? SELLING POINTS: * Pullout alphabet poster : A - Z museums * UK debut of an extraordinary new author-illustrator * Very distinctive, quirky style of humour * Each beautifully illustrated page covered with incredible details to spot * Adult gift appeal * Linda Sarah will be making her festival debut at the Edinburgh International Book Festival * Plans for subsequent books featuring other crazy characters from the world of Museum City * Next in the series: "Nu and the Museum of Lost Things from Fart Away Places" AUTHOR: Linda Sarah grew up dreaming of being a fire-fighter. That was before she ran away to Paris, working as a singer and piano player while raising her son. She returned to Britain and got her Fine Art degree at the Slade School of Fine Art, whilst working as a waitress and a few other small things, like running creative workshops for young people in Tower Hamlets who were going to be re-housed. These experiences were just brilliant and inspiring and full of huge amounts of giggling and models made from string, glue, paper, ridiculousness and imagination.
