On a brick wall stands a painting of a large dormouse wearing a teal night gown and hat. He looks frightened as he stares at the small mad hatter, who controls a mouse trap much too small to cover this mouse. In front of the mouse, a purple cheshire cat jumps with its back to the viewer. It looks shocked, and its smile is off of its face.

A Better Mousetrap

Completed: Fall 2023
