Story behind the Family Mouse
FM was born of a creative process that involved three people working together over a periodof several months in the winter of 1992. The process was set off by Eric Britton, who hadbeen pondering for some time of ways to engage children in the work that he and a number of international colleagues were engaging to advance the cause of sustainable mobility,sustainable cities and sustainable lives. This led to a conversation with his old friendWolfgang Zuckerman who had been working with him on these issues as writer/editor forseveral years, and between the two of them they gradually began to sort out a plan and theme.In a next step Eric brought in another friend, the illustrator Roget Tweedt who has alreadydone a series of successful children's books based on very big figures and bright colors , andthe three started a regular brainstorming process. Gradually the concept of a family of mice,facing what are after all rather typical challenges of modern society, and a few month laterFamily Mouse was ready for the presses. The original book went through several editions andwas widely distributed with the help of collaborating groups and individuals around theworld, and eventually procured by people in more than thirty countries. In addition a Germanlanguage version was developed in collaboration with Professor A-E Bongard and publishedand distributed in more than five thousand copies to schools across Germany.The plan is now to create a lightly edited new edition of which working copies of the imagesand the advanced draft text follow. Our hope is to find a way to make it available to children,families and schools in many parts of the world and in many languages. Language editionpartnerships are presently forming up with friends and collaborators in the followinglanguages: Chinese, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish . . . andthis is just getting started. (See translator notes at end of this working document.)As to the mechanics both of production and distribution, as well as the economics,. this hasyet to be figured out. But we have to start somewhere and what you have in the following isour first step. Please get in touch with your ideas and inspiration. Like everything we do hereat World Streets this is a collaborative project. Here is how to get in touch:
