This is a small book measuring just over 3 x4 . It contains three fables. From the first page on, this version of TMCM identifies the two mice as different. The town mouse complains and criticizes as soon as he arrives. There are good contrasting borders on 16 and 17 and then the same ones come back on 36 and 37. They also come back in LM (62-63)! In this story, the mouse realizes her mistake while on the lion's back. This story may have several of the best illustrations in the book: 60-61 and 65. The lion announces a moral, and then the editor adds her own. In FC, one reads (on 82) that the fox had an clever idea.
