Description

Jan Brett's Town Mouse, Country Mouse (Putnam, 1994) adds a bird of prey to the country version for tension and sets up couples who switch domiciles-all with her trademark lush detail-while Kate Summers's Milly and Tilly (Dutton, 1997) strikes just the right note.

Jan Brett's Town Mouse, Country Mouse (Putnam, 1994) adds a bird of prey to the country version for tension and sets up couples who switch domiciles-all with her trademark lush detail-while Kate Summers's Milly and Tilly (Dutton, 1997) strikes just the right note. Watts's version is a pretty tableau that lacks spark.

In the story the country mouse and town mouse visit each other because they are curious to see how each lives. Both treat their guest regally and the visits solidify a friendship. Their trips are adventures into the unknown, where new sights, sounds and tastes awaken their senses. But when all is said and done, the town mouse misses the city and the country mouse misses her rural abode. They go their separate ways, but agree to visit again someday. It is a great way for children to see the world from two perspectives.

When the town mouse and the country mouse visit each other, they find they prefer very different ways of life. This is a creative book that brings across the message that the grass only looks greener on the other side of the fence. In the end both town mouse and country mouse learn that their own homes are what they truely love. Teaches one to be grateful for what one has. My children love this book.

The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse is one of Aesop's Fables. It is number 352 in the Perry Index and type 112 in Aarne–Thompson's folk tale index. Like several other elements in Aesop's fables, 'town mouse and country mouse' has become an English idiom. In the original tale, a proud town mouse visits his cousin in the country.

Zanna Davidson has written over fifty books for children, both non-fiction and fiction. Her stories for children include the Fairy Ponies, Fairy Unicorns and Billy and the Mini Monsters series for Usborne. She lives in the countryside in a cottage on the edge of some deep, dark woods with two small boys and her scruffy black dog, Fred. For every parent, child and teacher weary of the monotony of the average reading scheme, Usborne’s First Reading series will offer rays of sunlight.

A country mouse lived in a field. You must come and see where I live. I shall give you all kinds of good things to eat. The town mouse and the country mouse went to town. A mouse from the town came to see the country mouse. The country mouse gave the town mouse dinner, but the town mouse did not like this dinner. My friend, he said, in town we have much nicer food than this. When they came to a big house the town mouse said, I live here. Come and see my house. They went into a big room. There was a long table in it. You can eat anything you like, said the town mouse.
