The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse

Hathaway House Books


The ancient Greek fabulist Aesop, born circa 620 BC, is credited with originating this endearing tale. Mentioned in the writings of Aristotle, Herodotus, and Plutarch, he is thought to have been a clever slave who acquired his freedom through the enchanting and entertaining folklore he gathered and created. Throughout the ages these most loved tales have been read, committed to memory and recited by children
the world over. Although the story may have many variations, in most versions, the safety of a humble abode and contentment with the simple country life are championed.
