Illustrated by Maggie Chambers, this delightful “tail” of the Mouse family honors the magic of Mackinac Island with all its little nooks and crannies. From the famous fudge to the handsome blonde dock porter Robert, the brand new book brings alive the scenes from the island.
Speaking directly from the main location of the story- the Windermere Hotel- Porter and Chambers share their creative synergy in this interview wrapped in love for the island.
“It’s a cold and foggy day,” said Chambers, “but tomorrow will be sunny.”
“I wanted to give a gift to the island,” said Porter.
During their two-year-long creative journey, Porter and Chambers perfectly complemented each other’s vision for the book.
“Wouldn’t it be cute..” said Porter.
“If they slept in fudge boxes,” Chambers finished the sentence.
“It just rolled that way,” Porter laughed.
