I am still trying to decide whether this book belongs in a fable collection. I think that no one in our culture can think of the country mouse without thinking of the fable, and so I put it in the collection. Here the mouse, tired of country life, takes a train, plane, and boat to the get to the city, where he rides a trolley and a bus and seems to enjoy it all. Then he retraces his steps. Maybe the best value of the book is that it shows the good things that there are in the fable that are not here, like excitement and surprise! Verse. Sideways format. Thick pages.
