Abstract
This is a delightful, short, softbound version perhaps most notable for its great rendition of the mice's heads and for the elaboration of mouse-life in both places. For the former, see, e.g., the embrace of the two on 10. The latter may be clear in some of the early details about the country mouse, who wove curtains of spider-silk and slept beneath a quilt of rose petals stitched neatly together with cobweb. The town mouse had problems with bug bites, freckles, and rain. The first encounter with town was apparently a carnival. When the cat attacked, the town mouse ran for her hole, but the country mouse ran straight home. The final line is And they each knew exactly where they belonged.
