The cartoon-work is fun here. Still, I wonder how successful Gardner is in depicting Town Mouse. His image does not fit with the text's description that his whiskers were fancy and elegant. In town, Country Mouse gets a tummy ache from all the rich food he has eaten. A woman with a broom and a cat threaten the two mice. Country Mouse stays one night in town but is too unhappy to sleep. He tries hard not to cry.
