The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
This booklet is redone from an earlier offering of Ladybird with the same title. That version appeared in 1982 in the Well-Loved Tales series and was printed in England. It was narrated by Anne McKie rather than this book's Molly Perham. I found it and three other books in the series on sale at the only supermarket we found in our first four stops in Africa, namely Nakumatt in Nairobi. The presentation of the tale seems to have changed. Gone is the city-mouse's earlier cigar and the city's vacuum cleaner. The trip back home happens in a hamper that happens to be shipped. The country mouse arrives home in time for Christmas. At least some of McKie's art seems to have remained the same.
