This large collection of stories includes TMCM on 294, described as an old Scandinavian tale. The Town Mouse gets drunk on Christmas beer, is caught by the cat, and offers to tell a tale to get free. A door slammed shut surprises the cat and allows the town mouse to get free. The second volume of the extra set contains no fables, but the match of spine designs with the first volume makes the pair delightful enough to keep in the collection. The children in the woods (I) meet the witch at her cottage door (II).
