Does Sheppey have its own secret Banksy street artist?

That's the question on many Islanders' lips as drawings of Moo Mop Mouse keep appearing along the seafront.

Artist Jo Eden spotted one of the drawings on the seawall near her home in Warden Bay but insisted she is nothing to do with the little creature which has also been sighted along The Leas at Minster.

She said: "They are popping up all over the Island and are really nice to spot. They are a sweet uplifting idea from an unknown artist."

Pictures of the mystery mouse are now flooding social media and have been described as "cute", "lovely" and "beautiful." The mouse now even has its own Facebook page .

The Moo Mop Mouse is often seen with positive posters and placards as the rest of us try to come to terms with the disruption of the coronavirus pandemic. One placard, held in its tiny paws outside a mouse hole, proclaims: "Things will get better."

Another spotted in Sheerness shows the mouse using an old-fashioned quill to write a shopping list for "cheese" in an open red book. A line of shells forms an arrow pointing to it to give walkers a fighting chance of spotting it.

There was also a pebble nearby signed with a pair of whiskers which pleads: "Post to Facebook if you find me."

Retired postman Phil Crowder discovered another Moo Mop Mouse drawn with a spilled glass of red wine near the Alice in Wonderland maze on Minster promenade. Another cartoon has appeared near the beach huts at the bottom of Seaside Avenue.

Dawn Cockburn who runs the Positive Life Today on the Isle of Sheppey page pleaded: "Whoever is giving us this joy, please continue."

Former Sheerness town councillor Amanda Green said: "It is lovely in many ways that this is anonymous but I do so wish that this wonderful artist would come forward and may be persuaded to do some larger art work."
