Billy boy blue, come blow your horn,
The sheeps' in the meadow, the cows'
in the corn;
Is that the way you mind your sheep,
Under the haycock fast asleep?

The final piece in the charming series of costumed mice based on the Olde Mother Goose nursery rhymes illustrated by Kate Greenaway is Billy Boy Blue.

Measuring just 3", he is designed in mouse form of the finest mohair plush and jointed at the neck and shoulders. The first-ever sleeping mouse from R. John Wright, Billy Boy Blue has embroidered features, realistic airbrushed coloring, inset whiskers, resin hands and feet, and a leather tail.

Billy Boy Blue is costumed in a custom-dyed cotton smock of the period with authentic pleating at the front and tiny buttons down the back. A brimmed hat sewn of natural straw braid completes his charming period ensemble. Around his neck is a tiny cow's horn made of cold-painted pewter. Over one shoulder rests his finely-detailed shepard's crook handcrafted of pewter and wood.

Billy Boy Blue is limited to only 150 pieces worldwide. Each Billy Boy Blue will come complete with hay inside a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
