Country Mouse invites her friend, City Mouse to visit her in the country. City Mouse does not enjoy the country and convinces Country Mouse to return to the city with her. Country Mouse enjoys the fine surroundings and foods until a noisy party burst into the room and the mice must scurry and hide. Country Mouse decides to return to her home in the country as she prefers her poor food in “peace and quiet” to the richest feast where “Fear and Danger lie waiting”.  (McGraw-Hill Open Court, 2002)
