This is a second copy of this delightful book. Its binding is blue rather than gray and is appreciably stronger. So I have made a second record and will keep both in the collection. This copy has a strange scent: a mixture of an old basement and a lot of incense! I include some of my remarks from the first copy. The pages are not numbered. Alternating black-and-white and color illustrations. The lion and hare drawings sometimes end up slightly odd. LM features a Do not disturb sign and a safari with movie cameras. TH is elaborate. The circular course is many miles long; a blacksmith lion is the starter. TMCM departs most from tradition and may destroy its own fiction. The town mouse arrives in a limousine and has an army of servants. The country mouse takes the train, gazes at a toy shop, gets help from a policeman, and knocks at the door.
