A town mouse met a country mouse
in a forest.
The country mouse was getting nuts.
"Are you getting nuts for food?"
asked the town mouse.
"Yes," said the country mouse,
"I am getting nuts for winter.
The woods are full of nuts.
It is a fine place to live."
"I have a fine place to live too,"
said the town mouse.
"I do not get nuts for winter,
but I have all I want to eat.
You must come to see me."
"Yes, I will," said the country mouse.
"But you come to see me first.
You can come on Christmas."
So the town mouse went to see the
country mouse on Christmas.
It was a long way.
And there was snow on the ground.
So when the town mouse got there
he was very hungry.
