Nezumi-kun no Chokki (The Mouse’s Vest) Exhibition

Art, Family Attractions

Nezumi-kun no Chokki (published in 1974), or The Mouse’s Vest in English, is a beloved picture book. Despite his small size, the protagonist, Nezumi-kun, with his gentle heart, is like a friend who is close to the children who read him. The series, which has sold more than 4 million copies and celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2019, was the result of the collaboration between author Yoshi Nakae, and his wife, painter Noriko Ueno. Black-and-white pencil drawings, minimalist text, and beautiful composition has captured the attention of many children over the decades.

This exhibition features about 150 of his original picture book drawings and sketches, including the latest in the series. Visitors will also get the chance to see more original work by Ueno, including illustrations some used in elementary textbooks and surrealist oil paintings.
