dc.description.abstractThis lively version focuses on the desire for an exchange, an experience of the other, and a quick return to one's own home. The City Mouse in downtown Mousetropolis wakes up to too much noise and needs a vacation. He responds immediately to an invitation from Country Mouse but sticks up his nose at his first country meal. When he asks what Country Mouse does for fun, he finds himself on the way to a jamboree. "Not bad," City Mouse says of the dancing. But going home he senses danger, and he is right. An owl watches them all the way. The night is too hot and too quiet. They both have the same idea and soon run for the train and land on top of a box car. The station in Mousetropolis is full of music, dancing, and food -- candy and cheese, of course! But just as an owl had appeared in the country, a cat appears in the station and scatters the mice. Country Mouse is quickly back home and says simply "Home." The back endpaper shows the City Mouse saying the same thing. Lively gouache illustrations. Maybe the "Swoosh" picture on top of the boxcar is the most unusual. The dancing figures on the front cover are also very well done.en_US
