Title: The Town Mouse and the Country MouseThe Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
Author: Aesop
Illustrator: T. R. Garcia
Pages: 32
Reading Level: Read Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★

In this re-telling of the classic fable ‘The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse’, the town mouse (a dapper dude indeed) comes to visit his hillbilly cousin in the country. They follow along their usual course of behavior, traveling back to the city and finally the country mouse declaiming the city as too scary and noisy.

Conclusion. I would think that a more beautifully illustrated edition could be found somewhere, as the message – that we generally prefer that which we are accustomed to – is a fine one.
