Book Synopsis



With remarkably detailed and beautifully crafted dioramas, Maggie Rudy retells the classic tale of the city mouse and the country mouse-with a new twist!

Country mouse Tansy is out picking berries when she comes upon visiting city mouse William Gray. They become fast friends, and Tansy returns to the city with Will for an adventure. But city life doesn't suit Tansy, so she returns to the country alone. Apart, neither friend is happy--so they meet in the middle and decide to settle in a little one-café town. And there they live mousily ever after! A beautiful picture book retelling of a classic folktale and a celebration of friendship.



Review Quotes




"Rudy's intricately constructed miniature tableaux of found materials and felted characters, photographed by her, offer much to pore over, and the double-page spreads depicting pastoral scenes, city streets, and their newfound in-between town are beautifully realized. Even the gestures of the two mice are carefully orchestrated to show emotion. Light and lilting prose complements the illustrations, which are clearly a labor of love." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on City Mouse, Country Mouse

"A heartwarming story of friendship is here, but the real standout are the illustrations. Inspired by a childhood trip to Beatrix Potter's farm, Rudy has enjoyed creating mice and their worlds out of felt and found materials. These collages are beautifully detailed and children will pore over them repeatedly." --School Library Journal on City Mouse, Country Mouse
