The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse

author/illustrator: Helen Ward

Rediscover the tale of the simple country mouse, magically retold by Helen Ward. Beguiled by his cousinís amazing tales, the country mouse visits the electric city. Unfortunately the town mouse forgot to mention that the city has a lot of noise, tall buildings . . . and dangerous dogs! Helen Wardís 1930s New York at Christmas is at once gorgeous and frighteningly busy. In the end the reader understands both why the town mouse loves his exciting life and why the country mouse is content with his peaceful home.

A gorgeously illustrated and poetically written classic, set in a 1930s-era city at Christmastime
