Publisher Comments:

The country mouse is visiting his friend in the big city to see how extravagant life can be. For the first time, he basks in endless amounts of sweetmeats, champagne, and the finest cheeses a mouse could ever want. But when life at His Majestyand#8217;s Court starts to show its darker sides, the country mouse quickly learns that the townand#8217;s riches arenand#8217;t worth losing the peace and tranquility of his own quiet home. In this classic tale of two of friends, Paul Galdoneand#8217;s gorgeous illustrations and simple prose remind us where we find lifeand#8217;s true treasures.

Synopsis:

This timeless Paul Galdone fable about a country mouse and a city mouse in a hardcover gift edition with gold foil is a rich addition to the recently released Folk Tale Classics series.

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
