The City Mouse and the Country Mouse
Good, lively art in a well-told story. The city mouse stays a few days in the country before he starts complaining. In the city, he reclines wonderfully in a cake stand. At the end there is a clever introduction to the moral: Write something for me to remember you by. What the country mouse writes is Pleasure that comes at such a cost is no pleasure at all. Little black-and-white designs set off the text pages that alternate with full-page colored art. Fine work!
