As it is such an attractive book, I think this could make a good gift from a loving relative...

Synopsis

Rediscover the tale of the simple country mouse who meets a cousin from the big city, magically retold by Helen Ward. Beguiled by his cousin's amazing stories, the country mouse visits the electric city. Unfortunately the town mouse forgot to mention the noise, the tall buildings - and the dangerous dogs! Helen Ward's 1930's New York is at once gorgeous and frighteningly busy - so that in the end, the reader understands both why the town mouse loves his exciting life and why the country mouse is contented with his peaceful home
