The Lovereading4Kids comment

The classic story about the different ways of life in the town and the country is beautifully and simply revealed in delicate illustrations. When Town Mouse visits the country he finds it simple and rather dull. He tempts Country Mouse to come to town promising him rich fare and luxury. Initially impressed, Country Mouse soon finds that such fine fare comes at a price and he’d rather enjoy the security of his own way of life.

Synopsis

The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse by A J Butcher

Town Mouse is not impressed with Country Mouse’s food.

‘How can you enjoy this? You must come back with me to town!'

In town, there is a wonderful feast – but also danger around every corner. This enduring fable by Aesop is brought to new and vibrant life with pictures by the inimitable Ayano Imai, illustrator of the delightful Puss & Boots and Chester.

About the Author
