Beatrix Potter's delightful retelling of the famous Aesop fable. In Potter's version, little Timmy Willie, a country mouse, accidentally hops a ride into town in a vegetable hamper. There he meets Johnny Town-Mouse, a sophisticated city resident, and all his friends. Adjusting to the great differences between his home life and the city living conditions proves challenging for little Timmy Willie. Adjusting is similarly challenging when Johnny Town-Mouse comes to visit Timmy Willie in the country.
