Rastamouse authors speak at Brent library to mark World Book Day

The crime-busting Rastafarian mouse has proved a massive hit with children

Hundreds of book lovers converged on a library to hear the authors of the hit children’s book Rastamouse speak about the ideas behind the reggae-loving crime-buster, for World Book Day.

The popular book series turned TV show tells the story of a skateboarding Rastafarian mouse who, aided by his posse the Easy Crew, fights crime in the fictional town of Cheeseland.

Co authors Genevieve Webster and Michael De Souza, who say they invented the character because of a lack of fun, ethnic characters in popular children’s literature, gave a talk at Willesden Green Library, in High Road, Willesden.
