It has become a new year tradition for me: start the year with a Beatrix Potter tale. This year, the tale is about Johnny Town-Mouse and Timmy-Willie the country mouse who visit each other's home, concluding they like their home best, the town for Johnny and the country for Timmy-Willie.
One of the most beautiful Potter picture books. Delightful.
One place suits one person, another place suits another person. For my part, I refer to live in the country, like Timmy Willie....

One place suits one person, another place suits another person.
The whole story is summed up in this quote.

Illustrations were very good. And the writing was also good and straight forward. This story was a very delightful read for me. (^_^) But I would highly recommend this to children.

I don't know which came first, this or 'Town Mouse, Country Mouse', regardless, this is a similar story. Beatrix is losing her eyesight by this time it says. I think some of these pictures are my favorite. It is so beautiful. I even like the story. Johnny Town-Mouse and his friends are so aristocratic. I like that he is willing to go to the country and see where Willie lives. The kids seemed to like this story a lot too. "Again, again" was the chorus. This is worth a read.

I guess this one was really personal for Beatrix Potter. Seems like she wanted the world to know that she liked the way she lived and the classic parable "to each his own".

The story is of Johnny Town-Mouse and Timmy Willie, the country mouse. Timmy Willie accidentally reaches the town and is heartily welcomed by Johnny and his entourage. In the town the customs, food and even the sounds are all different. This makes the country mouse nervous and sick.



Timmy decides to return for good and after

Sweet story of what it's like to live in town vs. country. I really liked how Potter drew the mice so differently (I should know, I catch both kids all the time in my walls!) Also, I'm with Timmy, the city was too noisey and scary, plus, lots of mice deaths...
