So when I came home last night from a flower arranging class with my little teapot full of roses, snapdragons, and stock, I knew just which book to display it with: Jan Brett's Town Mouse Country Mouse!
Her version of this classic tale goes back and forth between a country mouse couple visiting an elegant Victorian townhouse and a town mouse couple trying out the lush green countryside. Each couple faces challenges and predators (mainly an owl and a cat) that often show up in the page border illustrations!
In the end, each couple ends up in their own home. But you'll have to read the book to see what happens to their predators!
|"There's no place like home." sighed the town mouse, as he and|
his wife settled into a warm slipper.
