Overview

The country mouse is visiting his friend in the big city to see how extravagant life can be. For the first time, he basks in endless amounts of sweetmeats, champagne, and the finest cheeses a mouse could ever want. But when life at His Majesty’s Court starts to show its darker sides, the country mouse quickly learns that the town’s riches aren’t worth losing the peace and tranquility of his own quiet home. In this classic tale of two of friends, Paul Galdone’s gorgeous illustrations and simple prose remind us where we find life’s true treasures.
