The City Mouse comes to visit his old friend, the Country Mouse, who lives in the country, They have't met for a long time, so they are very happy to see each other.

The city Mouse gets off the city bus.

Welcome, my old friend! I am so happy to see you.

Hello there, my old friend! I missed you very much.

You must be very hungry. Let's go to my house. I prepared two special dishes for you.

Oh thank you very much. I am very hungry.

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse arrive at the Country Mouse's tiny old house. City Mouse looks surprised.

My goodness! How can you live here? The house is so small and old.

Perhaps. But it's quiet and cozy. And I am happy here.

Hmm. Really?! I can't understand you.

Sit here. I'll bring out the food.

The Country Mouse puts the food on the table.

Here is some lunch. Please eat.

You must be kidding? Dry bread and corn? How can you eat such things?

Why? They are the best foods in the country. They taste very good.

No, thank you. I don't like dry bread and corn. I like cakes, and cookies. Don't you have any?

What are they? I have never tasted them. Are they delicious?

Of course. They are so soft, so sweet, and so very delicious. I eat them every day in the city.

Wow?! You are a lucky mouse! I would like to taste them someday, too.

Please visit me anytime. I'll show you the city. And you can eat delicious food every day.

Really? I can eat cakes, cookies, and sweets every day?

Of course. I am so excited. Can I visit you tomorrow?

I have a great idea!

What is it?

Visit me today?

Today?

Yes! Right now!

Right now?

Yes! Come with me now.

Really? Okay!

Let's go to the city!!!! Y – a – h – o – o !

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse get on a bus to the city.

We get off here. Wow!

Look at the tall building and bright lights. The city is so beautiful.

What is that?

It's a trunk. Be carefull!

Oh, I didn't know.

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse finally arrive at the City Mouse's red brick house.

There is my house, let's go inside.

Wow! Your house is so big and beautiful. You are a lucky mouse.

Let's go into the kitchen. I'm so hungry.

Look! Cheese!

Stop! Don't touch it!

Why not?! I love cheese.

That is a mousetrap. If you eat the cheese, you will get trapped. Be carefull.

Oh, I didn't know.

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse climb up to the kitchen table.

You eat like this every day? There is so much food.

Here, try this chocolate cake.

Mmm. It's so soft, so sweet, and so very delicious.

Try this butter cookie, too.

Yummy! Yummy! I want some more.

ShhBe quiet. I hear something.

What?

Oh - oh, it's Old Yellow.

Who's Old Yellow?

It's the master's dog. Hide behind the cake!

Why?

Don't ask questions! Just hide!

Old Yellow comes in the kitchen. Grrrrr Old Yellow starts sniffing around the kitchen table.

(in a whisper) Stay still!!! Don't breathe, Don't make a sound!

I smell mice, Come out, come out.

Wherever you are! Arf! Arf! Arf! Old Yellow starts barking and running around the table.

I'm so afraid.

Me, too, But, get ready to run!

(Voice come from the living room) Come here, old Yellow! You need a bath.

I'll be back, Grrrrr

Old Yellow leaves the kitchen growling.

Thank goodness! Old Yellow is gone, We are safe now.

My goodness! How can you live here?

It's not too bad. You just have to be careful. Let's have some more cookies.

Are you sure it is safe?

Of course. Let's eat, I am still hungry.

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse start eating again. This time, Flufly, a cat, appears.

Meow, Meow, Meow, I smell mice.

Come out, come out, wherever you are!

Flufly sees the two mice and jumps up on the table.

Oh, there you are!

Quick!! Jump!!! Run! Run! Run! Run for your life!

Help me! Help me! I didn't know where to run!

Here! This way! Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!

Inside my hole! Quickly!

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse run into the mousehole. Both of them are out of breath, but they are safe.

Are you okay? (out of breath)

Yes, But I am very scared.

Don't worry. Fluffy can't get in here.

How can you live here? It's so dangerous.

It's not too bad. You just have to be a fast runner.

I'm going back home.

Why? Please stay a little longer.

No, thanks. The city is too dangerous.

But there is still a lot of food left.

You can eat it all, I'm going back to the country, and eat my dry bread and corn.

But they taste terrible.

Perhaps. But there are not trucks, dogs, or cats in the country.

You are a lucky mouse.
