Synopsis

Johnny Town-mouse was born in a cupboard. Timmy Willie was born in a garden. Timmy Willie was a little country mouse who went to town by mistake in a hamper.
Do you ever feel that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence? Well, so did Johnny Town-Mouse and Timmy Willie. One was a town mouse and one was a country mouse, and when they end up in each other's worlds, they soon discover that they were much happier where they started!
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including [Peter Rabbit](/book/the-tale-of-peter-rabbit/beatrix-potter/9780723247708), [Jemima Puddle-Duck](/book/the-tale-of-jemima-puddle-duck/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247784) and [Benjamin Bunny](/book/the-tale-of-benjamin-bunny/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247739).
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse, the twenty-first book to be published, is number thirteen in this series of charming stories.
