Beatrix Potter - The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse. Beatrix Potter loved the countryside and she spent much of her otherwise conventional Victorian childhood drawing and studying animals.

Beatrix Potter - The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse. Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous series of little books. A particular source of inspiration was the English Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and land conservationist, working with the National Trust. The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse is based on an Aesop Fable, but Beatrix Potter sets the story in the Lake District.

Johnny Town-mouse and his friends racketted about under the floors, and came boldly out all over the house in the evening. One particularly loud crash had been caused by Sarah tumbling downstairs with the tea-tray; there were crumbs and sugar and smears of jam to be collected, in spite of the cat. Timmy Willie longed to be at home in his peaceful nest in a sunny bank. The food disagreed with him; the noise prevented him from sleeping. In a few days he grew so thin that Johnny Town-mouse noticed it, and questioned him. He listened to Timmy Willie's story and inquired about the garden.

How can one go wrong with a Beatrix Potter story and for such a great price? I picked up a bunch of these short stories to read to my youngsters while we were on vacation. No need to carry a fifty-pound bag of books on the road any more. The Kindle solved the problem with flying colors. If you haven't grown up with these books you'll love reading them to your children. Mine can't get enough. Since this is a short story I'm not going to give a synopsis here but just believe me when I say you can't go wrong. If you prefer a paper copy of this story and other Beatrix Potter books I highly suggest: [...]

Quality of book is so-so. It's a black and white reprint of a public domain book and the cover is super-generic with no images from the book. They could have made it a lot nicer without much more effort.

Beatrix Potter is one of my very favorite children's authors, and The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse is my favorite tale she wrote, seconded only to the original Peter Rabbit. In this story, we meet a wee English bank vole, or country mouse named Timmy Willie who was born and raised in the quiet pastoral garden. One day, he timidly ventures into a vegetable hamper, eats too much (a common theme with Potter's animals) and falls asleep, only to awaken in the Town, very far away from his beloved garden. While in Town, Timmy Willie meets and befriends a jaunty and dapper town-mouse named Johnny. This simple story, set in Beatrix Potter's beloved English world of country and town is sure to delight anyone young or old who loves peace and quiet, or the events of town life!

I was looking for the traditional Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit series so I could complete a set started many years ago for my 2 sons. They have been passed along to my granddaughter and having the complete set to share with her is perfect. The books haven't changed at all, same book covers, font, size they are all great!
