This little landscape-formatted booklet, 7¼ x 4¾, fits inside the cheese wedge described under Book-Related Toys. This book has padded covers. The city mouse falls asleep inside a picnic basket, and so makes the trip to the country. The country mouse whom he meets when he goes out to explore is unknown to him. After a country meal, the city mouse invites his new friend to take the return trip to the city with him in the picnic basket. They are interrupted by a human being as they reconnoiter the delights left in the kitchen. This woman carries through on her threat to borrow the neighbor's cat. After one attack and the rush to safety, the two mice decide to go their separate ways. I will keep the book with the cheese wedge.
