All her life Tillie the mouse has wondered what lies on the other side of the wall. Imagining all sorts of fantastic possibilities, she digs a tunnel to get to the other side, where she discovers . . . other mice, just like her!

Written just before the fall of the Berlin wall, this seemingly simple fable has a powerful message for all children—and all people.

Editorial Reviews

"Lionni's inquisitive, clever mice prove once more the value of the fable as a storytelling device, especially when it is simply told and beautifully illustrated. . . . A superior picture book." —School Library Journal (Starred Review)

“A journey worth repeating.” —Publishers Weekly
