dc.description.abstractThis new edition reproduces the original 1971 version by McGraw-Hill. The texts and illustrations are the same, but the format is different. The long horizontal illustrations now cover the pages from left to right, but there is considerable open space left over and under them, so that a book that was 10 wide and 7¼ high has now become about 8¼ square. As I wrote there, Galdone's work is lively. The text is after Dodsley, who presents this story as I, 30, The Court and Country-Mouse. This version still changes Dodsley's female country mouse into a male, adds the court mouse's remonstration over country life and food, and adds finally the notion of the country mouse's considering overnight whether he will go to the city. Wetting whiskers in champagne is true to Dodsley. Galdone gives the country mouse a great smock. This edition continues the nice contrast between city and country in things like symbol and typeface. The lovely back-cover illustration of the two moving through the countryside is lost to an advertisement here. Finding this book in a favorite Georgetown toy store was a pleasant surprise.en_US
