Sister Maus Series

Sister Maus is the star of a series of books about a mouse (maus in German) who lives in the 18th century village of Salem, at the Edge of the Wilderness—the historic birthplace of the city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Stories and pictures are anchored in the actual history of Salem. Illustrations are based on actual sites, buildings, and artifacts used at the time. In the gallery, a sample of the historical images that inspired the books can be found.

The first book is called Sister Maus. Sister Maus’ further adventures are told in Christmas Maus and Easter Maus. To order copies of the books from Salem Academy and College click here.
