About the Book

With an exquisite palette and stunning compositions, award-winning illustrator R. Gregory Christie reimagines one of Aesop’s most popular fables.

City Mouse leaves his noisy apartment for a vacation in the country—only to find drab meals, unseen predators, unbearable heat and too much quiet! So City Mouse takes his country cousin to Mousetropolis, where a rodent can indulge in rich food and rub elbows with the elite.

But just as the party is getting started, disaster strikes! A cat attacks, scaring the city sophisticates clear out of their fine attire . . . while Country Mouse runs without stopping until he reaches the familiar fields of home.
