a book review by Catriona Tudor Erler: City Mouse, Country Mouse

In City Mouse, Country Mouse , author and illustrator Maggie Rudy puts a modern spin on the classic tale of the city mouse who is uncomfortable with the unfamiliar environs of the country and the country mouse who is overwhelmed by the frenetic hustle and bustle—and inherent dangers—of city life. The original tale is credited to the ancient Greek fabulist Aesop. In that telling, the proud town mouse scoffs at the simple country fare served by his rural cousin. He invites his lowly relative to the city to experience the bounty and sophistication of a metropolitan meal. All is well until two dogs bound into the room, terrifying the mice, who hasten to safety.
