21246 Mouse and his Child by Russell Hoban, ill Lillian Hoban.

The Mouse and His Child.

A broken clockwork mouse and child follow the child's dream of a home and family. Hailed as a classic when it appeared, this is a complex fantasy, full of logical tricks and high adventure. "A rich, disturbing, very touching book" Kirkus. This edition, not uncommon, has always been puzzling to date, it looks newer than 1967 but is certainly early, pre ISBN; it does not feel like a book club.

The Tale of Two Bad Mice

The Tale of Two Bad Mice

My favorite Beatrix Potter as a child, the awful china food, the daring of those mice when the feather bolster broke, Hunka Munka arriving to clean once a week forever! These older copies with the nice cover plates are still plentiful, but hard to identify online. Note: This book has been sold.
