This is a 32-page adaptation of TMCM. The title on the book's cover spells the last two words with crooked boards to suggest the difference between country and town life. So does their clothing, starting on the cover. Further, the town mouse is brown, and the country mouse gray. In the country, the two sit on thimbles and eat off the top of an overturned Earl Grey tea box. What is left on the table in town are remnants of dessert. In rush two dogs. Once in the clear, the country mouse is on his way. Better beans and bacon in peace than cakes in fear. The announced moral is Better a little in safety, than much surrounded by danger. I like the style of these adaptations. I was inspired when I found The Fox and the Grapes in this series and immediately found and ordered the rest.
