The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse Prints

The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse.jpg

Nursery, toddler bedrooms, even garden rooms would be graced with these lovely old vintage prints from The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse. The pictures of the mice, especially Timmie Willie, are charming and warm.  A good example of the country mouse is 'Timmie Willie and the Hamper, no. 19'.  The outdoor scenes have lots of color, especially green, and the country settings help those scenes come to life.

These prints show how country mouse Timmie Willie come to visit Johnny Town-Mouse. Because of Timmie Willie's curiosity, he leaves his garden home and finds himself in the house where Johnny Town-Mouse lives, with strange mice, a cat, a canary, lots of people and very strange food. Timmie Willie doesn't want to stay!  Again, the prints show the story taking a nice turn for Timmie Willie and Johnny.

We know there are different kinds of mice.  Beatrix Potter tells a tale of two mice who very different from each other in looks and in habitat, and that story makes for great prints.  The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse was copyrighted in 1918 by Frederick Warne & Co.

Due to copyright law, these prints cannot be sold outside of the United States.
