El ratón de campo y el ratón de ciudad: Fabula de Babrio
Babrius, Adaptaciõn de Noe Bofarull
"Here is one of three books in a series that includes "manualidades" -- handicrafts generally -- and a scissors on the cover of each book. The "handicraft" consists in cutting out parts for and then assembling a representation of each of the characters. This version of TMCM spends time on the style of life of each mouse. The country mouse lives a contented life of cultivating his garden and enjoying simple pleasures. The town mouse lives in a dumpster and is habituated to the smells of rotten fish and old vegetables. The latter visits his country cousin and reacts negatively as soon as the latter offers him some of the day's fruits of his garden. "Ay, primito, mio, qué mal vives!" After a few days, the country cousin comes to the city, and the two enjoy a banquet on Swiss cheese, dates, and honey. A fruit delivery man interrupts and almost inadvertently breaks their necks. The country mouse loses his appetite but they return to the feast -- but a cat appears and wants to pounce on them. After a long wait in a hole, the country mouse goes off, admitting that his food is not as good but happy to be able to run away from the city's dangers. The final story illustration on 19 gives a good idea of the cartoon illustration style, strong on blocks of vivid color. The two mice are constructed using colored paper, a scissors, glue, and colored pencils."
