dc.description.abstractI noticed this book as I wandered around Learning Sprout Toys in Tacoma on a morning of visiting after a fable lecture at Puget Sound University. The story starts in the present but promptly shifts to the past. Pipin is the country mouse. Pipin was surprised one day by a visit from Toby Town Mouse, come to stay. All it took, though, for Toby to reject country life and offer town life instead was an encounter with the nuts and berries that make up country food. Pipin was overwhelmed by the size of the train that they took into town. They wriggled into a man's green bag and were lifted aboard. In town, Pipin had to dodge in and out of stamping feet. In Toby's house, they ate until they were perfectly full. A cat woke them up and chased them to Toby's hole. That was enough for Pipin. Toby took him to the station and he returned home to declare, in his soft bed, This is the life for me. I thought the book might return to the present, perhaps with And that is why he now lies asleep in among the waving grasses, as it had begun. The illustration style is cute and probably appealing for children.en_US
