Wood Mice – apodemus sylvaticus – sometimes known as the Long Tailed Field Mouse is a common rodent found in most of Europe and parts of North Africa. They prefer woodland, grassland and gardens but are known to break into our homes which unfortunately has them labelled as pests and vermin. Despite being quite an unpopular animal Frank has remained the most popular seller at markets and events, he was originally drawn in 2009 for a friend who wanted a pet mouse but was unable to have pets where she lived, so naturally a mouse was drawn in pencil, framed and given as a substitute pet mouse!
There are many famous mice featured in literature, TV and film, most notable are Mickey and Minnie, Jerry from Tom and Jerry, Speedy Gonzales, Pinky and the Brain, Stuart Little and the mouse from The Green Mile to name but a few.
