It’s time for a vacation! This is a fresh take on the Aesop classic fable, The Town Mouse and Country Mouse.
City Mouse visits his cousin in the country- but while he loves to dance in the barn, he experiences spartan meals, unseen predators, unbearable heat and it's too much quiet! City Mouse finds that the country isn’t as restful and pleasant as he’d hoped. And so, the two mice hop a train to the bustling city. While Country Mouse appreciates the plentiful city snacks, it is much too loud, and he’s afraid of cats! Perhaps City Mouse and Country Mouse have different ideas of what makes for a perfect home.
