This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. The illustrations were prepared digitally. The same good illustration is offered here on the front cover, the title-page, and the first page of text. In it, the cat is peering into the mouse-hole. This volume, like each of the books in this series, offers a description of fable on the page preceding the fable text. This book does a good job of dressing up the mice and individualizing them, e.g., at the mass mice meeting on 8-9. Again in this volume, the last lines of the story offer a good moral viewpoint: 'You see,' said the wise old mouse, 'some things are easier said than done' (22). With this book and The Lion and the Mouse, I have both of the titles printed in the Read it! Readers series on the Green Level. Reinforced library binding.
