Ken Tolmie drew Mouse of the Hill in 1970. At this stage in his career, he was experimenting with many different forms; he had done some illustrations for books, so the logical next step was to try a comic strip. Mouse of the Hill clearly shows the influence of Pogo by Walt Kelly. Although Tolmie never published Mouse, he continued to experiment with this genre, eventually publishing A Tale of an Egg (Ottawa: Oberon Press, 1974), which was selected by the National Library of Canada as one of the ten best Canadian children’s books of 1974.
